Kabáh was a city as large and important as Uxmal.  Unfortunately, very little remains and the entire site can be seen in 20 minutes, more if you have a guide explaining it.

Not much has been excavated or restored.

Here they have the carved stones lined up where they will eventually go on the restored facade. I thought seeing some of the restoration process was pretty cool.

Someone on flickr added this shot as a favorite, so I thought there might be something to it.

Finally, see the green hill sticking up top center right? That's the unexcavated pyramid. Mexico has so many archeological sites, there is no way they can get around to restoring them all.

It was very hot this day, so we didn't linger long before we headed for lunch and the van ride back to Mérida.  The entire flickr set can be seen here.
