1st Templo Mayor began sometime after 1325. According to these records, the first pyramid was built with earth and perishable wood, which may not have survived to the present time...

2nd T Was built during the reigns of Acamapichtli, Huitzilihuitl and Chimalpopoca between 1375 and 1427. The upper part of this temple has been excavated, exposing 2 stone shrines covered in stucco on the north side.Chacmool is the term used to refer to a particular form of pre-Columbian Mesoamerican sculpture depicting a reclining figure with its head facing 90 degrees from the front, supporting itself on its elbows and supporting a bowl or a disk upon its stomach..On the south side there is a sacrificial stone called a "téchcatl" and a sculpted face..

3rd T Was built between 1427 and 1440 during the reign of Itzcoatl. A staircase with 8 stone standard-bearers is from this stage bearing the glyph with the year 4-Reed (1431) These standard bearers act as "divine warriors" guarding the access to the upper shrines..

4th temple was constructed between 1440 and 1481 during the reigns of Moctezuma I and Axayacatl. This stage is considered to have the richest of the architectural decorations as well as sculptures. Most offerings from the excavations are from this time. The great platform was decorated with serpents and braziers, some of which are in the form of monkeys and some in the form of Tlaloc. At this time, the stairway to the shrine of Tlaloc was defined by a pair of undulating serpents and in the middle of this shrine was a small altar defined by a pair of sculpted frogs. The circular monolith of Coyolxauhqui also dates from this time...

5th T (1481–1486) is dated during the short reign of Tizoc. During these 5 years the platform was recovered in stucco and the ceremonial plaza was paved..

6th T Was built during the reign of Ahuizotl. He finished some of the updates made by Tizoc and made his own; as it's shown on the carvings of the "commemoration stone of the huei teocalli", showing the 2 tlatoqueh celebrating the opening of the temple during the last day of the month Panquetzaliztli dedicated to Huitzilopochtli; day 7 acatl of the year 8 acatl (Dec 19th, 1487). The Sacred Precinct was walled off and this wall was decorated with serpent heads. He built 3 shrines and the House of the Eagle Warriors..At the inauguration of this Great Temple, Ahuizotl ordered the sacrifice of many prisoners of war; an average of 1,000 victims a day were sacrificed over a period of 20 days.. Each day blood ran like a river onto the pavement of the Great Plaza, and the stairs of the great pyramid were literally bathed in blood..

7th and last T is what Hernán Cortés and his men saw when they arrived to Tenochtitlan in 1519..Very little of this layer remains because of the destruction the Spaniards wrought when they conquered the city.. Only a platform to the north and a section of paving in the courtyard on the south side can still be seen..The deities were housed inside the temple, shielded from the outside by curtains..Huitzilopochtli was modeled from amaranth seeds held together with honey and human blood.. Inside of him were bags containing jade, bones and amulets to give life to the god. This figure was constructed annually and it was richly dressed and fitted with a mask of gold for his festival held during the Aztec month of Panquetzaliztli. At the end of the festival, the image was broken apart and shared among the populace to be eaten...According to tradition, the Templo Mayor is located on the exact spot where the god Huitzilopochtli gave the Mexica people his sign that they had reached the promised land: an eagle on a nopal cactus with a snake in its Mouth..., Rollie..
