About 750 central Teotihuacán burned, possibly during an insurrection or a civil war.

The pyramid rises 216 feet (66 metres) above ground level, and it measures approximately 720 by 760 feet (220 by 230 metres) at its base.Many neighbourhoods excavated in the late 20th century had been earlier cultivated by farmers.Located about 30 miles (50 kilometers) northeast of modern-day Mexico City, Teotihuacan was one of the largest urban centers in the ancient world. The city flourished between 2,100 years ago, when construction began, and about 1,400 years ago, when it went into a period of decline, including a fire that caused great damage.It was constructed of about 1,000,000 cubic yards (765,000 cubic metres) of material, including hewed , a red coarse volcanic rock of the region.During hastily organized restoration work in 1905–10, the architect Leopoldo Batres arbitrarily added a fifth terrace level to the structure, and many of its original facing stones were removed.
