The Temple of the Feathered Serpent
Stairs leading down into the sunken chamber of the Temple of the Feathered Serpent. This unique temple is located on the southern end of the Avenue of the Dead. The balustrade and tableros of the Temple of the Feathered Serpent feature large tenoned serpent heads with low-relief bodies upon which elaborate mosaic headdresses appear at intervals. The headdresses, with their prominent eyes and fangs, were integral to military iconography at Teotihuacan and were similarly used throughout Mesoamerica.
