Pyramid B is the home of the four massive statues (referred to as "atalantes") that are associated with the historic site. The four statues, which stand about fifteen feet high, represent high-ranking Toltec warriors.
Building 4 was believed by Acosta to be a royal palace for the rulers of Tula. Little remains of whatever structure was once there: now only parts of four rooms remain.
"The Burned Palace" named by archaeologist Jorge Acosta because he found convincing evidence, such as charred timbers and scorch marks on walls, that the building had once been burned.
