Archaeologists believe it dated from 1486 to 1502AC, when Emperor Ahuizotl ruled during what is called the Auge era of the Aztec empire.
He said: “This god’s function was to create wind. He had the power to produce wind and, at the same time, open paths so that the gods, in his case Tlaloc and his helpers the Tlaloques, would produce rain. And the building we’ve been able to identify is the posterior part of the temple Ehecatl.”
The temple is located inside a colonial-era building in the heart of the Mexican capital and was discovered when the owner applied to remodel it. In Mexico, archaeologists inspect the construction of all buildings in the historic districts before issuing remodeling permits.
