Teotihuacan is the most enormous archeological site situated in the Basin of Mexico. It has various largest pyramidal structures which were constructed in the era of pre Columbian Americas.

During the 7th century, this city was abandoned because of some issues and later Toltecs and Aztecs revered this sacred place. The Teotihuacan name of this city was given by the Aztecs which means 'the place where the gods were born'. Most people are still not aware with the original name of this city.

During excavations, numerous animal sacrifices as well as human bodies have been found in Teotihuacan pyramids. While construction or expansion of any building started, scholars believe that local people offered human and animal sacrifices as a part of dedication. All human sacrifices were enemy warriors who captured during the battle and brought here for ritual sacrifices. These rituals were done for just for the sake of prosperity of this city. Some male victims were decapitated, some were intentionally killed by being hit numerous times on the head, some men were buried alive and some had their hearts removed.

Animal sacrifices were considered as sacred and they also represented various mythical powers. Sometimes, whole military were imprisoned in cages along with eagles, a falcon, an owl, a wolf, cougars, venomous snakes and buried alive. This Teotihuacan pyramids are most favorite destination of history lovers. Every year, the number of visitors is increasing rapidly. It is the best suitable vacation place for younger to older generation. If you will search on the internet regarding this place, you will definitely get all the details.
