This archaeological site was the most important temple of Mexico Tenochtitlan. It was at the center of the political and religious life of the Mexica society. The temple itself consisted of four pyramids and ended in two shrines dedicated to, respectively, the gods of water (Tlaloc) and war (Huitzilopochtli). The House of the Eagles, the Temple of the god Ehécatl, a ceremonial tree at the foot of the stairway, the Huey Tzompanli, the Ball Game court, and the Calmécac were also part of the larger complex. Today the museum presents more than 3,000 important artifacts of Mexica culture. These are presented within the archaeological zone and include offerings, burials, stages of construction of the site, and objects from the colonial occupation.
