The secret of the ancient race of Giants. Part 1

The world was ruled by the Giants, and the people were their servants rather than an equal people, but then everything suddenly changed and the recent servants were looking for and destroying a few of the surviving giants. The dwarfs (people) ended up on top of the world and diligently erased any mention of the former giants of the history.

In the article, I have collected very interesting few of the survivors - historical materials on which there is a race of giants and moreover, the matter is not even limited only to giants, there are plant people, mermaids, dragons (and several species), and sea horses. dragons, holy giants with wolf heads, and much more …

Giant footprints left right at the entrance to the temple of Ain Dara indicate the importance and mystery of this place. These footprints remind of a long forgotten time, when "gods" walked among people, and perhaps only so that subsequent generations would not forget and deny the time when giants walked among us.

The ruins of a once prominent structure lie just west of the Syrian village of Ain Dara, northwest of Aleppo. They first attracted attention in 1955, when a huge basalt lion was accidentally discovered in the area. It stood there as a proud reminder of an ancient culture, so archaeologists soon became interested in it.

Excavations lasted from 1980 to 1985, and what they found bore a resemblance to the biblical Temple of Solomon, although later it turned out that these are not the same buildings.

The similarities between the temple at Ain Dar and the temple described in the Bible are truly striking. Both buildings were erected on a huge artificial platform, built on the highest point of the respective cities.

The platform on which the temple stood was guarded from all sides by lions, sphinxes, celestial gods and other mystical creatures with long claws, of which only legs remained, and all of them were carved from large blocks of basalt.

One could get to the temple premises by climbing a colossal staircase, on either side of which stood a sphinx and two lions. Then one could enter the middle room, which was followed by the main hall, at the end of which was the inner sanctuary, decorated with cult statues.

One of the more interesting aspects of the temple of Ain Dara are the footprints (about 1 meter long) engraved on the hard stone floor at the entrance to the temple.

One pair of footprints is on the floor in front of the entrance, and the second footprint is located about 9 meters away, right at the entrance to the main hall.

Further in the article I will post ancient engravings, illustrations, etc., which depict the race of giants, which lived on earth at the same time as people, but people in that period of history were only servants. We became "the top of the animal world" only when its real owners disappeared from the face of the earth.

These historical artifacts from different periods, but they all have one thing in common - giants.

The temple of Ain Dara is believed to have been erected at the beginning of the Iron Age, sometime between 1300 and 1000 BC.It was expanded by the Syro-Hittites, a group of peoples that emerged after the fall of the Hittite Empire.

The painting depicts a vision of the blessed Clara of Rimini, who led a pious life of self-denial and good deeds (she died in 1326).

My world, I leave you. "

They became the dominant power in the Eastern Mediterranean region until they perished at the hands of the Neo-Assyrian Empire in the late 8th century BC.

Although there is a millennium difference in the chronology of these peoples, the symbols and statues, the bas-reliefs engraved on the walls of the temples of both civilizations are very similar.
