  • It has a beautiful facade that allows great photos, its beautiful interior of the Christ of the Lord of Chalma is wonderful, its adjoining River where believers cooling has plenty of life, its ceiling is beautiful and its Atrium is broad, finally is must-see.

  • Crowded, disorganized, dirty, too many posts, buses leaving to the CDMX of bad quality. If they go to Malinalco not visit Chalma. If you want to go to the chalma ravine and it is not for religious reasons not worth.

  • .." Or going dancing at Chalma"it is a popular saying and comes precisely from this community. Go visit the Lord of Chalma is a rite very, very entrenched Mexican religious beliefs. They must buy his Crown of flowers and enjoy a michelada on the way down or back. Just as leverage to buy souvenirs. "The origins of Chalma are pre-Hispanic, surrounding existed caves in which was worshipped deities such as Oztoteotl and Tlazacotl, according to the legend that gave rise to the veneration of the Lord of Chalma, when the Augustinian missionaries on their way to destroy the idols, they found in the cavern an image of Christ with idols destroyed at his feet. The sanctuary of the Lord of Chalma is formed by the Church and convent built in the 17TH century, the temple is neoclassical and its altar is of painted wood and plateresque style."
