This square platform is located at the beginning of the path leading to the Sacred Cenote.
It's around 3 m high with a central staircase leading to a flat platform and therefore assumed it served for ceremonial purposes held there.
Side walls have beautiful carvings with snakes and jaguar heads.

If lucky your tour guide may bring you here and offer some interesting information about this place. It is very close (a few minutes walk) from El Castillo and thus is a must see due to its convenience in proximity.

The platform/temple of Venus is so beautiful. Intricate carvings still can be seen, and snake heads sticking out the edges are typical Mayan sculpture that we love to see.

It’s right by the main pyramid so you’ll see it. Have a guide to tell you the stories and so you see the relief structures of the Eagle and Jaguar. Spend a minute or so passing between the sports arena and the pyramid.

The Platform of Venus is a very cool and surprising intact monument to the goddess Venus. It has very intricate carvings and the detail is incredible! It is in Chichen Itza and you can’t miss it!

There are some Nic reliefs on the temple but without an explanation or guide book they may be difficult to interpret.

This structure is right next to the main pyramid in Chichen-Itza. I liked the animal heads that were jutting out of it that were similar to features in Gran Juego de Pelota.
There is also another smaller Platforma de Venus elsewhere in the Chichen-Itza complex.

On the areas within the park that is fascinating, our guide pointed out Jaguar, Snake and Eagle heads along with the symbolism. Take your time to walk the lesser traveled paths to see all the wonders that are in this one place.

This is another beautiful ruin at the Chichen Itza complex. Due to where it is positioned in the plaza, it is thought to have been a ceremonial site. It is easy to imagine someone standing atop it giving a speech...I am curious how it is connected with the area of echo in the lawn...Chichen Itza is a must visit.

If you are a photographer visit the ruins either early in the day when the park opens at 8:00 am or later in the afternoon before closing as it's very busy during the main part of the day when the tourist busses come.
