14. "The temple is a reproduction of one of the buildings of the Monjas, or Nunnery, at Uxmal, Yucatan--a striking example of the architecture of the Mayas. The Monjas is thought to have been the nunnery of the vestal virgins, who attended the sacred fires in the temples of their gods, and who were put to death if they broke their vow of chastity. The barbaric facade of the temple is decorated with relief carvings of the intertwining bodies of the feathered serpent god Kukulcan. Fantastic, grotesque masks done in the brilliant colors that characterize Mayan architecture, adorn the walls."
