Importancia de la Pirámide del SolVarios elementos indican que durante las primeras fases de Teotihuacan la Pirámide del Sol fue el punto de partida de los ejes que dividen los espacios divinos. Entre estos elementos están la monumentalidad del edificio, sus características arquitectónicas
y principalmente, las estructuras que conforman la Plataforma en forma de "U", así como las formas de todo el conjunto.La Plataforma en "U" que circunda la pirámide por sus lados norte, sur y este, estuvo decorada en su exterior con un muro inclinado (talud) y uno vertical (tablero). En su parte superior se encontraban varios templos, conjuntos de habitaciones y plazas menores; eran la residencia de los sacerdotes que se dedicaban al culto en ese recinto. Esta plataforma servía para separar las áreas externas de
las altamente sagradas. Al frente de la pirámide, en el centro de la gran plaza, hay un gran altar, en
cuyos costados norte y sur se aprecian templos y unidades residenciales (Conjunto del Sol). La parte oeste de la plaza está limitada por una gran plataforma que separa este recinto sagrado de la Calzada de los Muertos.

English:The Importance of the Pyramid of the SunConcerning the earliest phases of the City of Teotihuacan, there are several elements which indicate that the so-called Pyramid of the Sun was built at the center of the city, that is, at the starting point on the roads which define the godly places according to the pre-Hispanic cosmic vision. These include the building's astonishingly huge size, its architectural features, the various decorative and symbolic elements found throughout the complex and, above all the group of structures associated with it on the U-shaped platform.The U-shaped platform surround the pyramid on its north, south and east sides. Its exterior was decorated with sloped paneling and a top it there were a number of temples, groups of dwellings and lesser plazas for the leading priests and lords (House of the Priests) responsible for the worship practiced within this enclosure. The platform separates this highly sacrosanct area from others outside it. Caption:An aerial view of the Pyramid of the Sun and the surrounding area.
