Edd V.G.: I am sorry for not answering sooner. This pyramid is not unique. There is another big one on the south side of Ciudad de Mexico at Cuicuilco:


There is a small one in central Ciudad de Mexico in a Metro station near the Zocalo I think.

Ehecatl did not like sharp corners. He could stop the rain and bring drought and starvation to the people if he was angry. The round temples kept him happy.
