A maiden saw a feather drop softly on the floor. Without thinking, she put it in her womb. It did not come from a bird, but from one of the Mexica deities, who magically created a child in her womb. Thus was born the lord of Tepozteco, a semi god who
protected his people from various invasions. Its gallant figure cut in the mountain receives inhabitants and travelers, in his honor the pyramid of the Tepozteco was constructed and is known like Ometochtli-Tepoztécatl, the one of the iron ax.
