Stone carvings in Turkey reveal ancient secrets.

A report published in the Journal of Skyscape Archaeology by an international research team states the mysterious Yazılıkaya rock sanctuary in Turkey represents the cosmos, made up of the Earth, sky and underworld. 

It features more than 90 figures carved some 3,200 years ago into limestone walls by the Hittites, a people who founded their empire in present-day Turkey probably between 1680 and 1650 BC. The carvings were rediscovered in 1834 and have since been the object of scientific study. 

The carved figures function as a calendar and show the Hittites' view of the cosmos. In the center are the two supreme deities: sun-goddess Hebat and the storm-god Teshub, while two processions of lower deities are shown marching toward them. 

Our sincere appreciation, all researchers involved, for your work. May we understand previous civilizations more to better appreciate the diversity of the human experience in Heaven’s delight.
