Temple of the Feathered Serpent in Teotihuacán, Mexico



DescriptionRatingInfo
The Temple of the Feathered Serpent is the modern-day name for the third largest pyramid at Teotihuacan, a pre-Columbian site in central Mexico. This structure is particularly notable due to the 200 or more sacrificial victims found buried beneath the structure. The burials, like the structure, are dated to some time between 150 and 200 CE. The pyramid takes its name from representations of the Mesoamerican "feathered serpent" deity which covered its sides. These are some of the earliest-known representations of the feathered serpent, often identified with the much-later Aztec god Quetzalcoatl. This structure is also termed the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, and the Feathered Serpent Pyramid. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temple_of_the_Feathered_Serpent
