About Gobeklitepe The World’s First Temple

The breathtaking Göbekli Tepe in Turkey is 6,000 years older than Stonehenge and turns the conventional view of the rise of civilization on its head .
Six miles from Urfa, an ancient city in southeastern Turkey, Klaus Schmidt made one of the most amazing archaeological discoveries of our time: massive carved stones, about 11,000 years old, made and arranged by prehistoric people who had never developed metal tools or none at all Ceramics.
The megaliths are about 6,000 years older than Stonehenge. The place is called Gobekli Tepe, and Schmidt, a German archaeologist who has worked here for more than a decade, is convinced that it is the oldest temple in the world.Göbekli Tepe, Neolithic site near Şanlıurfa in southeastern Turkey. The site, believed to have been a sanctuary of ritual importance, is marked by layers of carved megaliths and is dated to the 9th-10th millennium BC. Estimated.

In Göbekli Tepe (Turkish: "belly hill"), near the Syrian border, a series of T-shaped limestone megaliths, some 5 meters high and weighing up to 50 tons, are arranged in a circle. Several such formations are positioned on top of each other: each completed circle was covered with dirt, and the process began again from the same place. While some of the megaliths are empty, others are carved on their wider sides with intricate designs featuring foxes, scorpions, lions, and other images.
About Gobekli Tepe The World’s First Temple

Göbeklitepe, which is about 6,000 years older than Stonehenge, was first examined in the 1960s but dismissed as a medieval cemetery. It was re-explored in the 1990s when its true age was estimated by comparing the remains of tools discovered at the site with those dated from nearby sites with carbon. Remnants of non-domesticated plant material and tens of thousands of wild animal bones - mostly gazelle bones - have been discovered there, but the lack of garbage pits, fire pits, or other evidence of domestic life suggests that it was most likely not a permanent settlement. Most experts instead refer to it as a ritual place that might have drawn believers from great distances. Since remains at the site suggest that Göbekli Tepe was built by hunters and gatherers (the presence of such amounts of wild animal bones suggests that they have not yet domesticated animals or started farming), the site has prompted some to do so Relationship between settlement and socio-cultural development.

Although settlement was long believed to be a prerequisite for the construction of temples and the development of complex social systems, the construction of Göbekli Tepe should have housed and fed a large number of builders in one place, which means that the coordinated efforts may have made a regulation necessary and have not followed it.

Göbeklitepe is the zero point of the world's history

The oldest discovered temple in the world, Göbekli tepe, is also the oldest known sculptor's workshop, according to excavation results at the site, which has been going on for 20 years . The excavations at Göbekli tepe, which is located in the southeastern province of Şanlıurfa and is referred to as the "zero point of history", are being carried out by the German Archaeological Institute and the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism. The head of the excavations was the German archaeologist Klaus Schmidt, who died a few months ago. Work in the Göbekli tepe had exposed human sculptures from the Neolithic Age, fossils of wild boars, foxes and birds made of limestone, and many arrowheads from tinder boxes. These finds indicated that the art of sculpture and stone relief dates back to 12,000 years ago.
