'Map of the universe' found in Turkey, this 3200-year-old document revealed the 'underworld' present under the earth
The Archaeological Department was excavating in a temple in Turkey, when he got a strange thing in his hand. Actually, the Department of Archeology found an ancient calendar and a map of the universe in this temple. It is believed that the painting carved on the stones is 3200 years old. In this there is a mention of a 'world below the earth', which exists under the earth. The temple from which the Archaeological Department got these ancient things was first discovered by the French archaeologist and historian Charles Texier in 1834.
In this temple, 90 types of animals, devils and deities are present in the figure carved on limestone. 200 years after the discovery of this temple by Charles Texier, it has been understood that it is a map of the universe. Researchers believe that this picture of the universe includes the earth, the sky and an underworld. The Sun God is carved on one wall and the Storm Goddess is carved on the other wall.
There is also mention of changing times like day-night and winter-summer
In this God is shown above others. On the other hand there are fewer people on the east and west walls. In addition, there are different phases of the Moon signifying birth and death. According to one estimate then 17 deities were believed. The painting present in a room tells about the underworld world. According to a researcher, an image of the universe has been shown in the temple. It also has a fixed earth, sky and underworld, and changing times such as day-night and winter-summer.
