Archaeologists have discovered an ancient temple hidden under the Teopanzolco pyramid in Cuernavaca, Mexico. A 7.1 magnitude earthquake that hit the country last September heavily damaged the pyramid, and scientists discovered the temple while scanning the pyramid for damage. Researchers think it was a temple built by the Tlahuica people around 1150 to honor Tláloc, the Aztec rain god. They found an incense burner and bits of ceramic inside the ruins.
