A devastating earthquake that rocked central Mexico in September last year has revealed the remnants of a temple inside an Aztec pyramid، according to "Sky News".

The temple، dedicated to the rain god Tlaloc، was unearthed by archaeologists using radar technology.

It is located deep within the Teopanzolco pyramid in the city of Cuernavaca in Morelos state.

Experts from the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) in Mexico say the structure probably dates back to around 1150.

The site was used by the Tlahuica people who lived in Morelos.

A ceramic remains and an incense burner belonging to the culture were also found.

Experts say the temple would have been around six metres long and four metres wide.

Barbara Koniecza، of the INAH، said: "The pyramid suffered considerable rearrangement of the core of its structure."
