“One has always wondered about the fact that India and Mexico have so many similarities. We look alike…Besides, there are said to be some ancient links between the Mayans and southern India, which makes our temple architecture similar.The Howler Monkey God Hun-Ahan of the Mayas resembles the revered Monkey God Hanuman in Hinduism.” India’s Ambassador to Mexico & Belize Sujan R. Chinoy, 8/13/20 India and Mexico: Case for a Strategic Partnership
We find other intriguing clues connecting ancient Mexican and Central American religion with the Vedic mystical traditions. Dr. Francisco M.P. Apodaca, an engineer with doctorate degrees in Archeology and Geology and member of the indigenous Mexican ‘Dance Society,’ identifies Quetzalcoatl as the same Supreme Godhead Hari, Vishnu of the Vedic Vaishnava Religion. Like Vishnu’s avatar of Lord Ramachandra, Quetzalcoatl’s body is green and at times he assumes a Krishna/Narayana-like blue form as well. In this blue form he is known as Kuauhtemoc.
As with Vishnu and Garuda, once again the Eagle is present. For this blue form of the Supreme God Quetzalcoatl known as Kuauhtemoc, means ‘One who has Descended like an Eagle”

A chapter from my book: The Serpent, the Eagle, the Lion & the Disc entitled ‘Copan Howler Monkey God and the Sign of the Wind God’
The great God Quetzalcoatl of the ancient Central American Traditions is the same Supreme Godhead, Hari, Vishnu of the Vedic Vaishnava Religion. Like Vishnu’s avatar of Lord Ramachandra, Quetzalcoatl’s body is green and at times he assumes a Krishna/Narayana-like blue form as well. In this blue form he is known as Kuauhtemoc. Again the Eagle is present for the name of this blue form of the Supreme God Quetzalcoatl verily means,’One who has Descended like an Eagle
The similar architectural styles of South India and ancient Central America are not the only commonalities to be found. The Howler Monkey Gods of Temple 11 located in Copan, Honduras are a case in point. They are identified as Hun-Ahan, the Howler Monkey God of the Mayas. He clearly resembles the revered Vedic Monkey God Hanuman. Beyond being monkeys, it is remarkable that both are directly connected to the Wind God. Hanuman is the Son of the Wind God and Hun-Ahun carries a rattle/club marked by the Sign of the Wind God. Mayan tradition actually identifies Hun-Ahan as a Wind deity
