Life of The Mighty Aztecs

This is the way the Aztecs lived

The Aztecs worshiped many gods and goddesses. The Aztec thought that the gods required a ritual payment in the form of human hearts and blood to remain strong. The Aztec had a 260 day religious calendar. Most religious activities took place inside walled ceremonial centers. The chief structures within the center were teocallis. A typical teocalli consisted of a wide solid base upon which rose steep staircases. Priests climbed the stairs to reach the temple to a divinity at the top.
