Drought Reveals a 16th-Century Mexican Temple

The mid-16th centuryTemple of Santiago had been under water in the Grijalva River in Mexico since 1966, when the dam of the Nezahualcoyotl reservoir was completed. Now a drought has lowered water  levels in the reservoir where the temple had been submerged making the colonial church visible again. According to an Associated Press report, this is the second time a drop in the reservoir has revealed the church since it was flooded. In 2002, the water was so low visitors could walk inside the church.
