Templo de Ehécatl
Los basamentos circulares son otro elemento arquitectônico propio de los mexicas que se encuentra en Teopanzolco. Sobre ellos se levantaban templos de planta también circular, cubiertos con altos techos cónicos de material perecedero.

En los antiguos códice pueden apreciarse dibujos de estas peculiares construcciones. Este tipo de templos estaba dedicado a Ehécatl, dios del viento, a quien se Representaba como hombre-pájaro y era una de las advocaciones del Quetzalcoatl.

Temple of Ehécatl
Round bases are another of the Mexicas' architectural elements found in Teopanzolco. They once held temples which were also round, each with high, conical roofing made from wood and thatch. These characteristic buildings can be seen in the ancient codices.

Such temples were dedicated to the wind god Ehécatl. Depicted as a man-bird, he was one of Quetzalcoatl's appellations.
