English translation:
Jalpan... a Nahuatl word that means "place on the sand of the hill", whose sand would become the magnificent Baroque mortar of this exuberance set in stone, our architectural pride from where civilization was carried all the way to Alta California. Civil society and government, on the 250th anniversary of its foundation, give this testimony of gratitude to those who with their sacrifice managed to build this beautiful monument for the propagation of faith.
May 1994
