Sierra de Tepoztlan or Tepozteco Mountain is located near the village of Tepoztlán, a Pueblo Mágico, in Morelos, Mexico. The mountain range, "vulnerable to landslides, erosions, and flooding", contains only small areas of land which are appropriate for cultivation.[1] Characterized as having "energies", it contains the ruins of a small, pre-Hispanic,[2] Ometochtli temple,[3] known as El Tepozteco. It is believed that there were a number of settlements at one time at the mountain base.[4]
