The sacred city of Teotihuacan also known as the 'City where men became gods', is located about 50 km north of the cosmopolitan Mexico City.
Teotihuacan was built between the I and VII centuries; it is noteworthy that the Teotihuacan civilization is characterized by its majestic buildings, including the famous pyramids of the Sun, the Pyramid of the Moon and the Temple of Quetzalcoatl.
The construction of these temples is perfectly designed with a geometric arrangement that meets the Calzada de Los Muertos and has great symbolism.
Monuments and Political platforms demonstrate the existence of a hierarchy quite similar to the organization established by the Lord Jesus Christ. As you stroll through the Quetzalcoatl temple you will find 12 elevated platforms with a seat for each member of the council. At the center, there is a rectangular platform with 3 seats or thrones all facing to a large temple dedicated to the god Quetzalcoatl, which many believe could represent Christ.
This mysterious city is full of amazing parallelisms that provide to those of the LDS faith a deeper understanding of the struggles and circumstances that these civilizations endured and provides a spirit of place to the stories read in the Book of Mormon.
