The Lost Temples of Gobekli Tepe by 

Way back in the realm of time lost to knowledge there was a place of Gods, a place where temples were constructed from stones and engraved with images of the animal Gods who protected them and to whom they served…

In the days before Noah, civilization created a place like no other and then it was mysteriously buried under 1000’s of years of earth never to see the light again until recent excavations have brought to light the secrets of the beginnings of Temple Worship.

In the world of Archaeology this is huge, for the professors who study ancient religions, myth and first cultures this finding rocked their world. Why?

Found to date to 9,000BC it belongs in a time of Hunter-Gatherers coming out of an Ice Age, the construction of the temples and T-shaped pillars gives no doubt to the fact men were creating communities based on Gods long before Sumer…

Turning religious history and ancient civilization on it’s head is the mysterious Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, a place lost in time and in the time line we created…
