A 400-year-old church immersed in a water reservoir in the south eastern Mexican state of Chiapas has surfaced because of a drought in the area which has lowered water levels by 25 meters.
The church, called the Temple of Santiago (or of Quechula) was constructed during the 16th century but “was abandoned due the big plagues of 1773-1776,” Mexican architect Carlos Navarrete informed AP News.
