16th century church emerges from water in Mexico
TECAPATAN : A 16th century church submerged in a southern Mexico dam project 49 years ago has reappeared following a severe drought, drawing visitors by boat to gaze at the spectacular ruins.
The Apostle Santiago church, built by Dominican friars, vanished under water in 1966 when the hydroelectric dam was built in the Grijalva river.
Around half of the 15-meter (49-foot) high church, which no longer has a roof, emerged in recent weeks in the Nezahualcoyotl reservoir.
Bjp must have conspired for submersion of this church. Blame bjp
And BJP and people like you will say it was a temple earlier converted to a church
thank god its not in Syria …
The last time was in 2002, when the entire, 60-meter long building could be seen

its quite amazing
The reservoir is loosing water heavily due to drought.
Wow! In India we would have called it a miracle and birth of a temple from water and might have named it Varun Temple.
It seems a beautiful structure. Hope it can be completely retrieved and restored to its original pristine glory
Big deal.They sank the church themselves in the first place by making the dam
Hmmmm. This only proves that water across is depleting.
its looking beautiful
wow so many visitors
at least they do not call it a miracle, if it was India we would have religious heads calling it as miracle of God & by now tons of people will be there to take blessings
They can make this a tourist attraction by controlling the water levels.
