Gobeklitepe, Turkey

Gobeklitepe, Entrance to the Sky

We do not know the exact number of obelisks in each of the main structures uncovered in Gobeklitepe. There are 12 obelisks in the main building of the D structure. In structure C, there are 8 on the outer wall and 11 on the inside, but this number is likely to be 12.

The number in other structures is not known. Some are already smaller or belong to another period. However, there are 12 obelisks in C and D structures, which are the oldest and sophisticated structure of Gobeklitepe. There are 12 T-shaped obelisks on the walls of the cult structure in Nevali Çori II. 

The fact that at least half of the obelisks in the structures C and D are embossed on both their bodies and T-shaped heads can be a clue to this mystery. However, the ornaments on the heads are not just on the left side of the figures but on the right side of the figures. If the reliefs in the heads were to be seen in a certain order, then the visitors had to move clockwise in the structures. If they went counter-clockwise, they would not see the reliefs on the head of the obelisks.

All this can only be the coincidence or design preference of those who build Gobekli Tepe. However, the preference for moving clockwise within the structures and the characteristics of the glyphs on the central obelisks of the structures C and D, possibly associated with the sky, indicate a kind of synchronization with the movement of the sky bodies, the Sun, the Moon and the planets in the west after they have been born in the east, and after traveling in the south.

This movement in the clockwise direction, in the direction of the Sun, can also be seen in the shadow of the vertical pole or the sundial. This is because the arms of the first analog clocks were set to move with the sun, that is to say clockwise, and the counterclockwise direction was seen to be reversed by the natural order of the universe.

The fact that the Gobeklitepe structures are divided into twelve parts may indicate that the design and planning of this monumental architecture is based on the basic cosmic knowledge of geography. If this view is correct, the 5: 4 ratio of all of the oval-shaped structures B, C, D and E is based on the basic knowledge of cosmic harmony, and also the interactions between their cycles at different times, especially the externality of the world, the axial tendency and It shows that the Earth's orbit is interested in issues such as the starry background.
