During my recent visit to Mexico City, one of the hightlights. Located approximately 40 minutes drive away from Mexico City. Doors to this UNESCO World Heritage site and landmark. Teotihuacan, is commonly known as the City of Gods, but as my local Nahuatl-speaking guide explained to me, the original inhabitants, later followed by the Aztecs, did not believe in Gods, but in Energy. So the correct translation should read at ” City of Energy “.

Established around 100 BC, Teotihuacan was the largest city in the pre-Columbian Americas, with a population estimated of 200,000, located in a sub valley of the Valley of Mexico, located in the State of Mexico.

Teotihuacan, other than being considered the main archeological site of Mexico, it is considered to have the second largest pyramid in the world – Pyramid of the Sun, right after the Great Pyramid of Cholula in Puebla and followed by Giza in Egypt. I climbed it myself and it took my at least 1o minutes to get to the top.
