A devastating earthquake that rocked central Mexico in September last year has revealed the remnants of a temple inside an Aztec pyramid.

It is located deep within the Teopanzolco pyramid in the city of Cuernavaca in Morelos state.

Experts from the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) in Mexico say the structure probably dates back to around 1150.
