There is a severe drought in the country.
Above the La Purísima reservoir in the Mexican state of Guanajuato, a 19th-century temple, the Mexican edition of Forbes magazine, reports.


Every year during the dry season, the top of this neoclassical and baroque temple rises above the water. But in 2021, the water level fell to a record low, and almost the entire temple became visible.
The Church of Our Lady of Sorrows and the surrounding town of Sangarro were flooded in 1979. President Jose Lopez Portillo ordered the construction of a dam and reservoir with an area of ​​1.2 thousand hectares in this area, since there was a threat of flooding the larger city of Irapuato, 25 km from Sangarro.
