CUERNAVACA (AFP) – A devastating earthquake that struck central Mexico last September gave way to a fascinating discovery: remnants of a rain god temple within an Aztec pyramid. The temple, dedicated to a deity called Tlaloc and located within the Teopanzolco pyramid in Cuernavaca, Morelos state, belonged to the region’s Tlahuica culture. The structure is believed to date back to around the year 1150. Ceramic remains and an incense burner belonging to the Tlahuica culture were also found.
