Sterek: Myths, Legends, Fairytale and Folklore

Huitzilopochtli// an aztec sun god of war and sacrifice

Tlaloc// was the rain god, he represented life and growth

16th Century Dominican Friar Diego Duran stated “These two gods were always meant to be together, since they were considered companions of equal power.”

That these two deities were on opposite sides of a temple is very representative of the Aztec dicotomy that deities represent. With one you had to have the other.
