450-Year-Old Church Emerges From Mexican Reservoir After Water Levels Drop
A 16th century church looks as if it was risen from the ground thanks to low water levels that normally swallowed the house of worship.
Due to a drought in southern Mexico, water levels have dropped so much that a 450-year-old church looks as if it has risen from the ground.
The water levels around the abandoned 16th Century church in Chiapas are so low that the place of worship is now visible above the water.
The church known as The Temple of Santiago or The Temple of Quechula, disappeared beneath 100 feet of water after a dam was erected in the late 60s to make the Nezahualcoyotl reservoir.
Now, the levels have dropped by 80 feet.
Tours of the church are now being given by local fisherman that brings people around by boat. The church looks like a floating island in the water.
This is not the first time water levels around the sacred ground have dropped. In 2002, water levels came down even further than they are today and people were able to walk into the church.
