“Hacienda del Apantle de la Santa Cruz, Memories of its Surroundings”
Of this civilization (the Tlahuicas), rich in architectural expressions, we can still find the pyramid-temples where their gods were worshiped: Coatetelco, Teopanzolco, Xochicalco and the Tepozteco.
The name of Coatetelco means “place of mounds of serpents”. Among the constructions of this archeological zone a circular foundation, presumably dedicated to Ehécatl, god of wind, and a ball court, stand out. (This is why it was considered that they spoke Espanis or Zapotec .)
Teopanzolco, built around the Thirteenth Century, is an archeological site in the city of Cuernavaca. It is made up of two pyramids dedicated to rain and war–Tláloc and Huitzilopochtli—, and two minor temples dedicated to Ehécatl (god of wind).
Xochicalco —“place of the home of flowers”— is considered the most important city-fortress of Mesoamerica. It is recognized by the Organization of the United Nations for Education, Science and Culture (UNESCO) as a World Heritage. This relic made up mainly of the Great Pyramid, the Pyramid of the Feathered Serpents, the Observatory and the ball court, was a very significant political, scientific and artistic center.
Tepozteco, built between 1150 and 1350, was dedicated to Ometochtli-Tepoxtécatl, the god of pulque, fertility and harvest. The idol of Two Rabbits, representation of Ometochtli, was found in the 9.50 meters high pyramid. The Tepozteco was also a god, son of Ehécatl. The pyramid is at the top of a mountain at more than 2000 meters above sea level and 600 meters over the valley of Tepoztlán. At Tepoztlán one can admire vast offerings of flora and fauna; there is a feast on the 8th of September
