Birthplace of Gods

by Sorin Krammer November. 09, 2008 2636 views

Teotihuacan is an enormous archaeological site in the Basin of Mexico, containing some of the largest pyramidal structures built in the pre-Columbian Americas. The name teōtīhuacān was given by the Nahuatl-speaking Aztec centuries after the fall of the city. The term has been glossed as ‘birthplace of the gods,’ reflecting Nahua creation myths that took place in Teotihuacán. Apart from the pyramidal structures, the archaeological site of Teotihuacan is also known for its large residential complexes, the so-called “street of the dead”, and its colorful well-preserved murals.
