Long before the advent of European civilization on American soil, Teotihuacan was known by all the people who lived in the same territory and respect for his name was profuse in all cultures that occupied what is now Mexico and parts of Central.
The origin of Teotihuacan dates back around the second century AD in central Mexico, where he settled and proliferated to reach over the centuries a population of nearly 200,000 people, and extended its domain to include most of present-day Mexico. The city of Teotihuacan reached the peak of its glory during the period between 150 and 450 AD
The empire excelled in every kind of art, often making original ideas, but also adapting and spreading the elements that attracted capital from Mesoamerica and, through the importation of stone materials, even from the far north.
