Also know as "Ciudad de los dioses" or "City of the gods/Birthplace of the gods"

The city was located in what is now the San Juan Teotihuacán municipality in the State of México, Mexico, approximately 40 km (about 24.8 miles) northeast of Mexico City. It covers a total surface area of 83 km² and was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.

Pyramid of the sun:

The base is the same as Giza's pyramid.

the Aztec empire existed from the 13th. AD till the 16th AD,
and these structures are from that era. it doesn't belong to Ancient times
parallel to the Middle East or Europe.

the pyramid of Giza erected some 4000 years before the pyramid of the sun.

that was standing in Europe before the time of the Aztecs of the new world

But this city is not Aztec :dunno: acording with archaeological studies this city dates back from 200 BC to 700 AC, the pyramid of the sun, the big pyramid in this ancient place, was built between 50 and 200 AC, and as you know the antiquity technicaly finishes in 476 AC whit the fall of the Roman empire in the west.
American civilizations are not only Aztecs and Incas.


10/10 to this magnific architecture made by a diferent civilization...

the monuments which are visible today are from the time of the Aztecs 13-16 cen AD.

yes there were older people who used to live there as anywhere in the world, these people built the early town of Teotihuacán , but later the Aztecs took over and built what we can see today.

The aztecs had nothing to do with Teotihuacan. Their city was Tenochtitlan which rested in former lake Texcoco, now the heart of Mexico City. Teotihuacan was a totally different civilization. The aztecs never took over the place out of respect, they used it for pilgrimage. In fact noone knows for sure who built this place after all for its creator is still debated, some say the toltecs but the site predates them.

This city was already abandoned when the aztecs first appeared, they thought it was the place where the gods were born and lived. It inspired the Aztecs to build their own magnificent city now buried under Mexico city.

It is estimated that the Sun Pyramid was finished at around 100AD

Totally false... the monuments you are looking on the pics were not made by aztecs, aztecs made their own city called Mexico-Tenochtitlan now destroyed and buried under Mexico city's down town. Teotihuacan was built as online said by the first century AD (Actually the main pyramids were built on that date). Their inhabitants left the city with out any confirmed reazon. Teotihuacans and Aztecs have nothing to do, they were totally different cultures, they didn't lived at the same era. "Aztecs" or mexicas didn't put a rock over these pyramids, never built on them. Cero, Zip. Totally confused. No one lived there ever after, it was a sacred place though.
