  Pyramid of the moon
by Maria_75

This is one of the biggest and most important archeological sites in the whole of Mexico. During it's glorydays about 1500 years ago, it was one of the biggest cities in the world! The influence of the city can be seen in very many places all around Mesoamerica.

No one knows who made the city, who lived there or why it was suddenly abandoned. When the aztecs found it, it had been deserted for hundreds of years. They thought that no human could build something as beautiful as this, and assumed it was made by the Gods, and that it was the origin of the Universe.

It became a very important religious place for the aztecs, and the name Teotihuacán ("The City of Gods"/"The place where Men becomes Gods") comes from them.
