Toltec warriors with butterfly shields

Tula, the capital city of Toltecs, has intriguing gigantic stone statues of Toltec warriors in its archeological zone. It is also believed that the ancient Toltec ruler was very “white” and had to leave his throne for some reason. He pledged to come back. When the Spanish arrived centuries later, people thought that the mythical king was back. As if this was not interesting enough, I visited a cathedral in the city that has a semi-naked mural of Jesus Christ. A fun and strange day overall!
