Pyramid of the Moon, Teotihuacan

Pyramid of the Moon Overview

The exact time and period when the Pyramid of Moon was built is still unknown. It has been found by the archaeologists that the majestic pyramid was contrived between the period, 200 AD and 450 AD. The extensive searches have also made the archaeologists to reach to the conclusion that the pyramid was refurbished six times, and ingenuous and more sustainable additions were incorporated in it before it was labelled as a magnum opus.

Archaeologists have still not been successful in finding out the history of the enigmatic and intriguing culture. There is an impressive sculpture of The Great Goddess resting in the pyramid, depicting modest craftsmanship and artistry. The flowing slope running just in front of the elegant stairs leads to the Avenue of the Dead. The Avenue of the Dead was built by the makers to organize ostentatious and casual ceremonies to give reverence to various goddesses such as The Great Goddess of Teotihuacan, and the goddesses of fertility, earth, water, creation, etc.

The artisans from Mesoamerican culture also projected the burgeoning city on a plateau. This projection covers 22 sq km of area and was prepared in between the period of 150 BC and 500 AD. One can also see a huge figure of The Great Goddess personified as a water goddess that had been elevated to be hinged on the top of the already magnificent building. The water flowing from the hands of the deity is believed to infuse life and is an embodiment of fertility.

The archaeologists in 2007 have burrowed and found a tomb devoted to The Great Goddess. The speculations have been made that the tomb was built during the fourth stage. The tomb artistically depicts replicas of serpent, wolf, male human being sacrifice, skeleton of a bird, knives, figurines, and hundreds of similar subjects.
