Simply so, when did Teotihuacan begin and end?
The city may have lasted until sometime between the 7th and 8th centuries CE, but its major monuments were sacked and systematically burned around 550 CE. Teotihuacan began as a religious center in the Mexican Highlands around the first century CE.
Also, how old is the city of Teotihuacan? about 2,000 years old
Subsequently, question is, who really built Teotihuacan?
And its origins are a mystery. It was built by hand more than a thousand years before the swooping arrival of the Nahuatl-speaking Aztec in central Mexico. But it was the Aztec, descending on the abandoned site, no doubt falling awestruck by what they saw, who gave its current name: Teotihuacan.
What were the Teotihuacan known for?
Teotihuacan is well-known for its colorful murals painted on plastered walls. They can be found in the city's many apartment compounds as well as on other buildings identified as palaces and temples.
