Teotihuacán is a large archaeological site in Mexico (North America) which is covering more than 20 square kilometers. Only about 3 percent of the site has been fully excavated. The people who orginally built the site are unknown. Its current name was given by the later Aztec people who seem to have regarded it as a holy place.

In the Nathuatl language of the Aztecs, "Teotihuacán" could translate to something like: "place where gods were born" or "place of the origin of gods". Indigenous legends assert that it was the "birthplace of creation", where the gods would observe the evolving world and judge its progress. The two largest pyramids would been built by the "giants" that existed in those days, and the purpose of the site was to "transform men into gods", probably meant allegorical. This could mean that this place was once a place for spiritual initiations, just like the Great Pyramid in Giza - according to the ancient Egyptian esoteric knowlegde.

Until today, no single burial had been found within or below the pyramids, so they were most probably not tombs. Academics agree that the city was built for spiritual and political purposes. Although the structures on the site are - like the pyramids of Giza - obviously built with stability and durability in mind, they were actually not built with large megalithic stones, but smaller ones. There are estimated to be over 600 structures including two large pyramids; the Pyramid of the Sun and the Pyramid of the Moon, approximately 70 other large structures, and like over 500 much smaller ones. Among these smaller structures, we see some kind of elevated square platforms, neatly arranged as seen in the picture on the right, and their specific purpose is unknown.

According to Shirley Andrews' book "Atlantis: Insights from a Lost Civilization" (2002), the building plan and orientation of the buildings at Teotihuacán were built in alignment to the rising and setting of the Pleiades.

In the year 2003, a tunnel was discovered below the Temple
of the Feathered Serpent (the third largest pyramid of Teotihuacan and known as the oldest pyramid in Mexico) when a heavy rainstorm exposed a shaft that led to a spot about halfway down its length. Over the next decade the team of archaeologist Sergio Gómez dug out the tunnel and found a series of two chambers on either side of the tunnel in 2013. Within these chambers they found many pyrite mirrors and crystal spheres. Beyond these chambers, more chambers were discovered where more objects had been found including a wooden box filled with seashells that were carved with stone tools, four jade statues of 60 centimeter tall, rubber balls and jaguar remains.

Sergio's team also found hundreds of yellow spheres with a small robot equipped with camera and infrared scanners. These spheres were made of clay and range from 1.5 to 5 inches in circumference, and got their colour from a material called jarosite. The purpose of these orbs is still unknown, although they are considered to have been used in ritual practices. (Source: www.dailymail.co.uk)


In the beginning of 2015, an announcement had been made that there also had been found large quantities of liquid mercury at the end of the tunnel.
Researchers believe that its purpose was to symbolize an underworld river or lake, and it could suggest the existence of a king's tomb or a ritual chamber. Earlier before this discovery, mercury had also been found at three other sites in Central America; two of the Mayas and one of the Olmecs. (Sources: www.theguardian.com and www.dailygrail.com)

Besides the site of Teotihuacán, in Mexico we also find the impressive pyramid of Kukulkán at the Yucatán Peninsula.
