The Queretaro pyramid

The central link between the Chupicuaro Domain and the Teotihuacan nation. A city enriched by Otomies and Chichimecs. It has architecture elements similar to other Otomi sites in Queretaro state.

This temple honors the 13 heavens.

Currently called the Queretaro Pyramid or El Cerrito. It is located in northern Central Mexico (nearby the Bajio region), in the capital of the state of Queretaro (same name). It is at much three-hour driving north of Mexico City. This temple or teocalli honors the 13 heavens which Ancient Mexicans believed superior realms of existence were divided.

An echo of yesteyear glories.

Today only the echo of yesteryear glories remains. A distant echo that seemed a weak whisper that struggle to stand against the tyranny of oblivion in the face of other peoples fortuitous raucous fame.


Note: Pyramid is the widely used name, although correct terms encompass temple, teocalli, and its equivalents in other native languages.
