Teotihuacan: Temple of the Feathered Serpent

Also known as the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, this temple is one of Teotihuacan’s most enigmatic structures. Smaller than the Pyramids of the Sun and Pyramids of the Moon, yet it stands out for its intricate decorations and historical significance.

The temple’s design is a testament to the advanced architectural skills of the Teotihuacanos. It’s adorned with numerous stone heads of the Feathered Serpent deity, Quetzalcoatl, and the rain god, Tlaloc. These carvings symbolize important religious and political themes of the era. Quetzalcoatl is the snake-head creature and Tlaloc has the goggle eyes like Wall-E.

There are lots of climbing to do. Please we prepared for that. Bring lots of water!

There’s also a museum in Teotihuacan but we didn’t spend too much time in there.
