Megaliths of the Holy Land as An Astronomical Planisphere

Tall al-Umayri, Madaba Plains, Jordan, Deciphered by Andis Kaulins, 2004

Atlit Yam Decipherment by Andis Kaulins 2008

Peter Tompkins in Secrets of the Great Pyramid, Galahad Books, N.Y., 1971, writes: "According to Hebrew historians the original Jewish center of worship was not Jerusalem, but Mount Gerizim, a strictly geodetic point 4° [4 degrees] east of the main axis of Egypt. It was only moved to Jerusalem after 980 B.C.

Mount Gerizim = Har Karkom in the Sinai part of ISRAEL

Our discovery is that this clearly means
that Mount Gerizim was Har Karkom (Geri=Kar, Zim=Kom).

As found at Ancient Sources:

Eusebius, Onomasticon 64:16-17 (ca. 295 A.D.); Jerome 65:16-17 (ca. 390 A.D.)

"Gerizim (Deut 11:29), is the mountain on which stood those who recited the blessings [Jerome mistakenly writes: the curses], near Mount Gebal of which we spoke above."

Har Karkom in ISRAEL = Mount Sinai

We refer here particularly now to a great pioneer book by
Professor Emmanuel Anati
The Riddle of Mount Sinai:
Archaeological Discoveries at Har Karkom
Edizioni del Centro, Studi Camuni
(a series of monographs on art, archaeology and history).

The book can be obtained from:

Anati - in our opinion correctly, it is HIS discovery -
places the Biblical Mount Sinai at Har Karkom
in the NORTH of the Sinai Peninsula and not SOUTH
(as the mainstream currently and erroneously believes).

Har Karkom is full of megaliths and rock drawings. Har Karkom is just south of the major ancient trails across Sinai, whereas the South of Mount Sinai would have been next to impossible in ancient times for a large number of people to reach on foot, as Exodus claims.


This knowledge gives us the key to the ancient Neolithic survey of this region and shows us clearly that the present location of Mount Gerizim and Mount Gebal as set by mainstream scholars is totally false, being set simply based on guesswork at the Shomron Valley.

But, in fact, Har Kar-kom = Geri-zim.
This was the ancient Hebrew holy place on Sinai.


The "neighboring" Mount Gebal - as we shall show below - is Jabal Yu Alliq (highest peak in North Sinai) in spite of the fact that neighboring Jabal 'Urayfan Nāqah is on the same horizontal survey line as Har Karkom and Petra and might be thought to be the neighboring Gebal, which is not so. Jabal 'Urayfan Nāqah and Petra are even equidistant from Har Karkom at a latitude of about 30°20' but this relates to a later era.


A horizontal line extends to the West to Jabal Yu Alliq in Sinai and Qusayr ad-Daffah (today deserted ruins) in Libya, just on the edge of the modern border to Egypt. Qasr in Arabic means "castle, fortification". Qusayr ad-Daffah marked the ancient Neolithic Western border to Libya.


From Qusayr ad-Daffah there is then an ancient survey line northward to Tobruk and Bi'r al-Uzam and southward to Agoza (today deserted ruins), just south of the current four-country border corner of Egypt, Libya, Chad and the Sudan. Agoza was the actual ancient border point.

The survey line to the East from Tobruk
runs at an angle of 110° to Jabal Yu Alliq and Har Karkom.

The survey line to the East from Agoza
runs at an angle of 110° to Meroe.

Two lines run to the North from Meroe,
one line perpendicularly up to Jabal Yu Alliq
(forming a surveyor's parallelogram with Tobruk, Agoza, and Meroe)
and the other line running North to Har Karkom.


The distance between Jabal Yu Alliq and Har Karkom represent
"the arc" of the distance "lost" due to the curvature of the Earth.

Using the map website WayHoo we can find the latitudes and longitudes of these locations with geographic positioning results that persuasively confirm the above survey analysis. Agoza is at 23.75°E 18.5°N, Meroe is at 33.75°E 17°N, i.e. EXACTLY 10 degrees longitude apart, while Qusayr ad Daffah is at 24°E 30.33°N, Tobruk at 24°E 32°N, Jabal Yu Alliq at 33.5°E 30°N and Har Karkom at 34.75°E 30°N.

The actual positional data are:
Agoza, Chad 18.50000 N, 23.75000 E
Meroe, Sudan 16.93833 N, 33.74722 E
Qusayr ad Daffah, Libya 30.33333 N, 23.90000 E
Tobruk, Libya 32.06667 N, 24.01667 E
Jabal Yu 'alliq, Egypt 30.37528 N, 33.50500 E
Har Karkom, Israel 30.28750 N, 34.74250 E


The longitudinal difference of this "The Arc" (more on "The Ark" below) between Har Karkom and Jabal Yu Alliq is about 1.25 degrees which reflects the diminishment in the circumference of the earth for the intended difference in longitude between Har Karkom and Meroe, i.e. about 13.5°. Hence the difference in the circumference of the earth at Har Karkom and Jabal Yu Alliq from its circumference at Meroe for 10 degrees of longitude between Meroe and Agoza is thus 36 x 1.25 = 45 degrees or 1/8 of the circumference of the earth less than at Meroe.


This ancient "Ark" is mentioned in ancient Hebrew sources.
As written at Har Gerizim and Ayval:

"The twin peaks of Mount Gerizim and Mount Ebal stand above the Shomron Valley.... [Note by Megaliths.net - that location is the mainstream idea and simply false.]

Six Tribes of the Bnai Yisroel stood by Mount Gerizim and six Tribes stood by Mount Ayval. The Ahron HaKodesh (Holy Ark) was set between the mountains.... [Note by Megaliths.net - In our opinion, that reference is the division of the heavens into twelve spheres. As Andis Kaulins has discovered from the names and positions of the Egyptian Nomes, the Holy Ark - symbolized by the dog Anubis - was placed at the Vernal (Spring) Equinox ca. 3117 BC to the right of the stars of Orion. In Indo-European, e.g. SUNIS, SUNI (pl.) means dog whence the stellar origin of the name of the peninsula, SINAI. The derived name Anubis is Indo-European e.g. Latvian Navis "death" which the dog also symbolized. Hence, in the megalithic survey system of the ancient Middle East, if Sinai represented the stars to the right of Orion at the Spring Equinox ca. 3117 BC, then, in fact, Egypt represented Orion, and this would confirm the hypothesis of Robert Bauval and Adrian Gilbert in the Orion Mystery, that the Giza Pyramids represent Orion, i.e. the pyramids are placed on an ancient Neolithic location.

Moshe Rabbaynu commanded the Bnai Yisroel that as soon as they crossed the Yarden (Jordan) River [Note by Megaliths.net - this was actually the Wadi el Jayb, i.e. the "River Jordan" at the other end of the Dead Sea. Of course, this occurred much later than the pyramids, at the time of Moses, which as we have written elsewhere, was the 13th Pharaonic dynasty and not the chronology currently assigned to Exodus.] they were to take twelve stones from the river bed and build a Mizbayach on top of Mount Ayval. They were to plaster over the twelve stones and carve into the plaster the words of the Torah in all seventy languages. (Deut. 27:1-26)
