There are distant cultures which are divided by space and time. And, yet there are references which indicate that many similarities do exist. Whether there is some ancient connection amidst these sites like the Peru and Göbekli Tepe is yet to be understood.
Here are summarized some similarities with respect to the sites:
• Göbekli Tepe was a flourishing site almost 12,000-14,000 years ago. However, even today the preserved reminiscent showcase the highest degree of engineering and finesse. The quality of stonework has the researchers and archaeologist surprised and ecstatic. The carvings found here are of 3 types, the 3D high relief, the shallow relief of animals, H’s and the humanoid arms and belts. The artifacts found here inculcate:
1. Prehistoric flints all over the region
2. Broken parts of nicely fabricated T-shaped blocks
A stone from the place is displayed in the Urfa museum. And, it has immense similarity with those found in Peru. An archaeologist Klaus Schmidt, recognized the site as belonging to the culture of “pre-pottery Neolithic”, since it was same as he found in Nevalı Çori.
• The shaping of the pillars in here is also very interesting. It is an abstract construction that sits gently on the bedrock. The rims are finely carved and the shape reminds of the Tiwanaku in Bolivia.
• Again, there are the interesting sites in close vicinity to the Ankara, the modern capital city of Turkey. In here the megalithic walls are somehow very similar to the polygonal walls which are in Peru almost everywhere. In fact, the jigsaw of irregular shaped blocks was witnessed in some parts of South America, west coast of Italy, Egypt, Greece, Saudi Arabia and also Japan. It seems the style of binding stone was allured by the primitive megalithic builders.
• The Sanilurfa museum, in close vicinity to Göbekli Tepe, has immense similarity to the stone spheres, in San Jose Museum. In fact, there is the Urfa man, which is 6 ft tall. It is similar to the one found in Costa Rica. Both the statues are similar like an apparition. They have the same unique double v-neck style, no mouth and a stump at the base.
• The capital of Peru is Cuzco. It is called ‘The Navel of the World’. It will be interesting for the readers to know that the name Göbekli Tepe implies ‘world navels’ as well. So, there is the place called Sillustani in here, which has relief carvings which are absolutely similar to the ones at Göbekli Tepe. In fact, these include serpents, foxes, puma and some unusual creatures.
• Then, there is another chulpa site in Cutimbo. It is almost 25 km from Puno. There is stonework in here, which have faces of creatures which seem emerging from the rock. Graham Hancock has compared these faces with the statue found at Göbekli Tepe.
These and many such similar structures indicate that some connection does exist. And maybe it’s time to recreate some details of history and archeology!
