The Temple of Quetzalcóatl in Teotihuacan

At the end of the corridor of the ritualistic monuments of La Ciudadela in Teotihuacan sits one of the most famous and ancient temples of this archeological site: The Temple of Quetzalcóatl.

This building is one of the most interesting structures in the city even though it doesn’t have the megalithic proportions of its eternal neighbors — The Pyramid of the Sun and The Pyramid of the Moon — its façade is unique.

All along the length and the front of the monument are heads of feathered serpents representative of the mythical Quetzalcóatl, an ancient living demi-god in the meso-American culture.

There also exist images of aquatic elements and Tlaloc, the Aztec god of rain, water, and fertility.
