Museo del Templo Mayor

Museum and archaeological site of Templo Mayor

History, Centro Histórico y Alrededores

"This exhibition is divided into eight rooms, four in the south side and some others on the north side. The original museum project is based on the same distribution of the ancient Templo Mayor, which was worshiped to two divinities. Huitzilopochtli, solar god of war and patron of the Mexicans, whose chapel was on the south side of the building, since Tlaloc, god of rain linked directly with agriculture, whose temple occupied the north side. In that way, the first four rooms are dedicated to Huitzilopochtli and a broad-war sense, including products obtained by the Mexica through their territorial gains, while the last four are about Tlaloc, agriculture and exploitation that the Mexica made of natural resources in general."
