The literal English translation of "Comalcalco" is "In the house of the comals". A "comal" is a tortilla-pan. Although this is a name given by Aztecs recently the Maya name has been deciphered and it is "JOY CHAN" (knotted ceiling).
It is the western most known Maya settlement.
The Mayan ruins at Comalcalco are a mystery to archaeologists and other researchers studying the unique architectural style of the ancient city. Other Mesoamerican sites of the Maya, were built using hand carved limestone blocks - not bricks. This is the only Mayan pyramid built from fired bricks.
When an oyster-base mortar used to bind the bricks was removed, it revealed various odd markings on the back of the bricks, including what is believed to be the brick maker’s fingerprints.
