Why was the temple of Quetzacoatl round?

Answer:

The temple of Quetzalcóatl at Tenochtitlán, the Aztec capital, was around building, a shape that fitted the god's personality as Ehécatl. Circular temples were believed to please Ehécatl because they offered no sharp obstacles to the wind. Roundmonuments occur particularly often in Huastec territory.
