The City of Gods

Teotihuacan, Mexico
High in the mountains of Central Mexico stands an ancient city, a masterful work of sophisticated layout and engineering, a city that was the third largest in the world at the time of its glory, a city whose builders remain a mystery, a city where great pyramids were built and a complex system of government and religion flourished, a place they call "The City of Gods."

A few miles northeast of Mexico City stands the ancient site of Teotihuacan, the largest city in Mesoamerica during Pre-Columbian times. Orthodox archaeologists are divided concerning the dating of the site, some believing it flourished from 1500 to 1000 BC, and others stating a later period of 100 BC to 700 AD. However, an increasing number of scholars studying the mythology, anthropology and archaeology of the Valley of Mexico suggest that Teotihuacan may be far older than previously assumed and, amazingly, that it may be part of an archaic planet-spanning sacred geography mapped by a mysterious lost civilization.
