The Cholula Pyramid is dedicated to the major god of the Aztecs, Quetzalcoatl
INAH is doing restoration work at the pyramid and have found an adobe core on the east side that dates to Late Classic. Broken ceramics there were braziers indicating sustained use of fire at the pyramid. A cylindrical sculpture in white stone representing Tlaloc, the god of rain, storms and fertility has been uncovered.
INAH is studying the underground level and 24 tunnels under the pyramid.
