Teotihuacan – the “Place of the Gods”

Teotihuacan was initially a nameless deserted place discovered – not built – by the Aztecs. Experts say this gargantuan city of pyramids located outside Mexico City had been abandoned more than 500 years before its discovery. Who built it, why and how? No one knows, and judging by the seeming lack of art and writing and the many corpses found at the site, the initial inhabitants were probably not too friendly.
