Sign above platform, 24 April 2011
The station logo depicts a stylised image of a mammoth, with raised trunk and tusks. During the construction of this station, the fossilised remains of a mammoth (Mammuthus meridionalis) were dug up by an excavation gang. The fossil is now exhibited in a display in the station. The station was opened on 29 August 1981.
Talismán also means "amulet", and an elephant with a raised trunk is considered a good luck symbol.
This metro station, like others on Line 4, stands on Avenida Congreso de la Unión.
The western exit is on the same block as Procter & Gamble Mexico's Talismán Plant, where soap products including Camay and Safeguard are produced. Trucks delivering tallow and olive oil (raw materials for soap) are a common sight around the station.
