Teotihuacán means in Natuatl's (the original language): the city where people become god. Teotihuacán has been built  the second century before Christ. In the flowering-time (fifth century) 200.000 people lived in this city! It was in that time one of the largest cities in the world and THE economic, religious, cultural and military centre of middle America. Thus for example they even maintained trade relations with the Maya's. Teotihuacán covers 21 square kilometers and exists of palaces, court squares, temples, etc. In 700 A.D. the city has been devastated by an invasion of the Toltecs.


Pirámide de la Luna. A royal sepulcher monument with tombs. The road leading to it is called dead road, Avenida de los Muertos, 4 kilometers long. See also the next photograph.

The pyramid has a basis of
120 x 150 m. and is 43 meters high.

In the photograph upper left you see the pyramid of the sun.



Pirámide del Sol.
The 2nd largest pyramid in the world. 65 meters high. Under the building lies a labyrinth of tunnels and caves, which the Aztecs consider as the birthplace of the world. The pyramid counts 244 steps.


On the pyramid of the sun, with view on the pyramid of the moon.
The tops of the pyramids are on the same high. This is because the pyramid of the moon lies on a on a rising.


And of course take a pose in front of the pyramid of the Sun.


Templo de Quetzalcóatl.
This temple has been decorated abundantly with relief of the snake god and of rain god Tlaloc. Unfortunately we have seen little of it. First of all they are working hard on the restoration of the pyramid through which the pyramid loses a little bit in beauty and secondly it was raining considerably through which the visit was very short.

Tot nu toe betreft het een viertal vakanties: Suriname, Egypte, Peru, Bolivia en Mexico. Verder een kort fotoverslag van de zonsverduistering in 1999 te noord-frankrijk in de buurt van het plaatsje Spincourt. Er is een mogelijkheid om mijn gastenboek te tekenen.
