The Mesoamerican archaeological site of Tula, located in Hidalgo, approximately 75km north of Mexico City, Mexico. 

Tula is thought to have been the historical capital of the Toltec state. Pictured in the top photo are the 16’ high colossal atlantids atop Pyramid B. These atlantids depict rulers or warriors armed with spear-throwers and darts. To date we actually still do not know a great deal about the Toltecs (their name meaning “makers of things”), whom the Aztecs claimed to have descended from.
