Great Pyramid of Tenochtitlan

  Landmarks

Tenochtitlan was the capital of the Aztec empire and the largest city in the pre-Columbian world, with the Great Pyramid of Templo Mayor being its main temple. Dedicated simultaneously to 2 gods - Huitzilopochtli, the god of war, and Tlaloc, the god of rain and agriculture, the 65 metre high pyramid had 2 shrines at the top, and is split down the front with a gutter for sacrificial blood. While the site lies in ruins today, a reconstruction and excavated finds can be seen in the Museum of Templo Mayor.
