Sacrificial temple used by the Aztecs. The Aztecs believe that in order for the sun to rise the next morning a person had to be sacrificed. They believed that the gods eat human blood.

They would lay them over an alter backwards, cut their beating hearts out of their chests with an obsidian or flint dagger, cut off the head, and toss the head down the front staircase and then put the the heart on one of these two little altars depending on what god the person was sacrificed to.

We love the original Aztec temples, but the movie Apocolypto inspired us a little more on this one.

Mmm this is important, I hope the google translator not fail me XD

First of all, I mean that your temple is great... and the movie is shit throughout the extention of the word, the scaffolding of wood? that piece of ignorance on the part of producers.

In principle the Aztec gods do not "eat" human blood. they absorb the essence of the offerings (for that reason the Aztecs knew that the Spanish were not gods) ...

The blood was given as tribute to the gods, that from the Aztec point of view, blood is the most valuable resource that can deliver a human above all things, including gold and jade.

Now, dying on a sacrifice was the greatest privilege of a lifetime.

the victims climbed the temple steps on their own (not shoddy scaffolding on the side), often representing a god or using valuable costumes.

The film was sued by groups of historians, for its exaggeration of reality ...

search the internet, the person chosen to be sacrificed to Tezcatlipoca was given the treatment of gods on earth...

Good luck :)
