The Ehecatl-Quetzalcoatl Temple is among the most recent archaeological discoveries in Mexico City. Discovered just in 2014, the public viewing area opened only in 2018.
In fact, it’s in the basement of the small Plaza Tlatelolco shopping center. The circular temple is dedicated to the god of wind, Ehecatl. In fact, a good number of sites in the City are dedicated to the same deity. Three are in Tlatelolco, and the other recent one is in the basement level of the Spanish Cultural Center, on the north side of the Zócalo. Even better known is the temple within the Pino Suárez Metro station.
The site is open to the public only with a prior appointment. These can be made by telephone or email (see below).
The site is very convenient to the Plaza de las Tres Culturas area. However, it’s actually across the street (R. Flores Magon) from Tlatelolco proper. Thus, it’s also convenient to the Salon de Los Angeles dance hall and to the rest of the Los Angeles neighborhood. This is all part of the greater Colonia Guerrero.
