Edzn√° Mexico - 2001 - Sign on the Edificio de los Cinco Pisos (Five Floor Building).

The English part reads:

A series of hieroglyphics are found at the foot of this building which indicate the year 652 AD. However, the construction periods extended over a period of several centuries, especially from the 4th to the 14th centuries AD.

This structure has been completely explored and 27 contemporary rooms whose facades or entrances face west, have been identified in it.

Some of the rooms have slab type corbeled vault roofs; others have well cut stone blocks and still others lack a roof or keystone due to having been remodeled by the same builders. The other sides of the building have only been partially explored on the first level of the north side. The entire heighth of the group, including the roof comb or finish of the upper temple, measures 31.5 m
