History Synopsis:

The Great Pyramid was an important religious and mythical center in pre-Hispanic times. During a period of a thousand years before the colony. The construction phases of the great pyramid of Cholula were built gradually until it became the largest in Mexico.

The temple-pyramid complex was built in four stages, it was dedicated to the deity Quetzalcoatl. It has a base of 450 by 450 meters; in fact, it is the largest pyramid and the largest monument ever built in the world, with a total volume estimated at more than 4.45 million cubic meters, even greater than that of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. The Aztecs believed that Xelhua built the Great Pyramid of Cholula, as legend has it. Although the pre-Hispanic city of Cholula remained inhabited, residents abandoned the Great Pyramid in the 8th century when the city suffered a drastic population drop, the Great Pyramid maintained its religious importance.

The site was once called Acholollan (in Nahuatl) which means \"place of flight\". This meaning has led some to believe that this site was founded after its original inhabitants fled elsewhere. The Great Pyramid of Cholula, also known as Tlachihualtepetl (Nahuatl meaning \"hill made by hand\"), is a huge complex located in Cholula, Puebla, Mexico.
