The archaeologists believe that it dates back to 1150 therefore, there is a high suspicion that it may belong to the Tlahuica culture. This has been a known culture of the Aztec peoples inhabited in central Mexico.

Also, Tláloc is the main structure of the temple as Tláloc was considered the rain God by the Aztecs. The statue measured 20ft by 13ft.  Also, they found ceramic shards and an incense burner within the remains of the temple.
