Tula Ruin Site History

Tula was active for 400 years and reached its height in the year 1000 AD when it was a dominant city in Central Mexico with ties far to the south at Chichen Itza and possibly to the north.
The site shows classic Mesoamerican characteristics, with ball courts, pyramidal platforms, plazas, and altars.
Also interesting architecturally are the canal systems, drainage systems, terraces,  and bridges over the Tula River. Many sculptures, polychrome sculptures and bas relief works of art decorated the buildings in ancient times.

Tula spread over a huge area where tens of thousands of people lived during the 400 years of habitation, which peaked in the  year 1000 AD when Tula was the dominant city in Central Mexico.
Tula-like architecture has been found by archaeologists as far south as Chichen Itza in the Yucatan and it is not known whether this was a result of trade or subjugation.  
The plan to the left shows the classic Mesoamerican city layout: ball courts, a large plaza surrounded by Pyramidal platforms centered by a low altar.

The Toltec culture of Tula appears to have been  warlike judging by the monument to the warriors which was once covered by a huge roof. The warrior statues pictured left were columns that supported a roof.  These statues are thought by archaeologists to represent historic figures and one is believed to be the mysterious Topilzin Quetzalcoatl, a living god of  myth and legend.
