According to legend it was where the Gods gathered to plan the creation of man. Construction of Teotihuacán commenced around 300 BC, with the Pyramid of the Sun built by 150 BC. The city reached its zenith approx. 150--450 A.D., when it was the center of an influential culture. At its height the city covered over 30 square km, and housed a population of as many as 200,000. The central avenue is called "Avenue of the Dead". The city contained palaces, apartment buildings, a marketplace, huge pyramids and temples used for worship. Teotihuacán was a place of pilgrimage in Aztec times, who identified it with the myth of Tollan, the place where the sun was created. Around 750 A.D., much of the city was burned, possibly during an invasion or a rebellion. less
