Mysterious Sealed Chambers Discovered In Ancient Aztec Ruins

In the heart of modern-day Mexico City lies the great Aztec temple known as the Templo Mayor, which once served as the sacred center of the Pre-Columbian empire’s capital city of Tenochtitlán. With the recent discovery of a ceremonial platform and two sealed chambers beneath the famous landmark, archeologists believe they may have the chance to unravel a mystery that has baffled them for centuries, by finally revealing the tombs of some of the great Aztec kings.

By continuing their exploration of a hidden tunnel that was discovered in 2013, researchers have now uncovered a passageway leading to a circular structure which resembles a Cuauhxicalco – a ritual space which, according to ancient reports, was used to burn the corpses of Aztec rulers. This was accompanied by two sealed doorways, which archeologists speculate could guard the burial chambers of these sovereigns. Judging by the date of the temple, excavators believe that any tombs discovered here could belong to some of the earliest Aztec rulers, including Montezuma I, who reigned from 1440 to 1469.
