Teotihuacan

Capital of Mexico's largest pre-Hispanic empire, Teotihuacan boasts what our guide says is the second largest pyramid in the world, second only to the Pyramid of Cheops in Egypt. Here it is, the Pyramid of the Sun:



Then there is the Pyramid of the Moon:



From the top (half way up, really) of which you get this view, looking down what the Aztecs called the Avenue of the Dead, believing that it was lined with tombs built for the Teotihuacan kings.



This mural of a jaguar is the only one remaining on site



I just like this view for some reason



Lastly, from the back side of the Pyramid of the Sun at the end of the day. I didn't have time to climb it, so I walked around it instead.
