Circular temple to god of wind uncovered in Mexico City




Working at the site of a demolished supermarket, archaeologists dug 10 feet down to find a temple built more than 650 years ago, researchers said Wednesday.

The circular platform, about 36 feet in diameter and four feet tall, now sits in the shadow of a shopping mall under construction. The site is believed to have been built to worship the god of wind, Ehecatl-Quetzalcoatl, and the plans to preserve it and make it visible to the public with a large viewing window.

This site believed to have been built for worship and possibly offers an example into how the Mexican-Tlateloca people had worshiped their Gods. It's a nice find due to the urban landscape encompasses the area of this ancient civilization.

Oh, wow. That is one hell of a fire pit. I wonder if it had a pig roaster or a barbecue grate on it.
