Archaeologists scanning a Mexican pyramid for damage following the devastating 7.1 magnitude earthquake of September 2017 have uncovered traces of an ancient temple.

The temple is nestled inside the Teopanzolco pyramid in the city of Cuernavaca in Morelos state, 43 miles south of Mexico City.
It is thought to date back to before 1200 AD, and could belong to the Tlahuica culture, one of the Aztec peoples living in central Mexico. The structure is dedicated to Tláloc, the Aztec rain god but without further research, the exact age of the new temple is open to debate.
