Templo Mayor the Heart of the Aztec Nations

Explore Templo Mayor in Mexico City the Heart of Tenochtitlán

Templo Mayor was the first item on my list of things to do in Mexico. And Likely the reason or excuse for this trip to see Mexico. The ruins of Templo Mayor did not disappoint. The museum exceeded expectations. I visit the exterior multiple days and the museum on two days. One of the days I hired a local guide. I recommend hiring a registered guide to enhance your experience and understanding.

The ancient city of Mexico Tenochtitlán is without a doubt the navel of the universe: the center of centers. Place of myths, pilgrimages, maximum religiosity, sacrifice and blood on the edge of obsidian. City that for almost two hundred years was the heart of the Mexica empire.

The first exploration focused on recovering Mexica memory was carried out by Manuel Gamio in 1914. He found the remains of the southwest corner of the Great Great Temple and from then on the need arose to know the location of this building, but it was not until 1978 that this would occur. One of the most significant finds that have contributed to unveiling the Mexica city is that of Coyolxauhqui -daughter of Coatlicue and sister of Hutzilopochtli, and since then the gods have not stopped emerging.


I primarily travel solo but you don't have to to enjoy this channel. Working as a river guide during summers in North America I don't earn a lot of money and live close to the federal poverty level. In spite of this I live a rich life on a frugal budget.
