Temple to Ehecatl Quetzalcoatl Uncovered in Mexico City

INAH has uncovered an Aztec circular temple under a Mexico City demolished department store. The round temple was dedicated to Ehecatl Quetzalcoatl, as the wind god. It will be preserved behind a viewing window inside a shopping mall to be built in the site. Inside the temple, INAH found an infant, bird bones, obsidian, cactus spines and monkey and duck ceramics. White stucco remains on the temple.

The Guardian has the report here with a photo;
