FUSING THE TELLURIC WAVES WITH THE MAGNETIC CURRENTS
Written by Gevork
Some segments of The Architecture of Armenia from the Siuni Server.
The Armenian master architects knew the secrets of the terrestrial forces of Mother Earth and by combing these natural magnetic currents with the solar telluric waves used the network to effectively create important sacred Centers of harnessing the Cosmic Energy and creating ancient generators of the Life Force. One of the very important surviving astrological centers known to man that is at least 7,000 years old is the K‛arahunj [which literary translates into -- Stonehenge -- which served the very same purpose but K‛arahunj is much older --the same name however suggests that the Priest-Builders and the Civilization that built both K‛arahun and Stonehenge was Universal]. The K‛arahunj Observatory is located in the Syunik [Siwnik‛] Province of Armenia. This Holy Ground served a specific purpose of harnessing the Cosmic Energy or -- the Life Force -- through specific telluric alignment of Sacred Architecture of the Temple-Observatory.

ERECTING THE GREAT ARMANEN CITIES
THE SOUTHERN GATES OF THE CITADEL OF TEYäEBAINI
Unfortunately, today much of this Ageless Wisdom of the Perennial Teaching has been lost and only shreds of the shattered picture are all that remain with us. Nonetheless, each year new archaeological, linguistic finds and discoveries in those and similar fields or disciplines gradually restore the 'lost Wisdom' of the great ancient seers -- the Armenic [Arman] Ancestors.
ARARATIAN SANCTUM SANCTORUM AT ALTINTEPE
The earliest surviving examples of ancient Armenian architecture can be traced to the Stone Age or the Megalithic Era. Recent discoveries made in the Armenian Highland by a number of European archaeological teams (published in the August 2000 issue of the German scientific magazine Bild Der Wissenschaft) showed that architectural structures, including such advanced complex manifestations such as temples and palaces can be traced to circa 9, 000 BC (around 11,000 years ago!) before the common era. The article in the prestigious scientific magazine entitled 6,000 Years before the Pyramids! describes in detail the world's oldest temple located in Armenia and dated to circa 9,000 BC -- or 11,000 years ago! These finds are in fact pointing to the origin of the present Civilization in the highlands of Armenia [for there were other Civilizations or perhaps one universal source Civilization prior to our own time].
ARARATIAN TEMPLE AT ALTINTEPE
The recent sensational discovery of the Temple City in the Aragatsotn Marz [Province], by a team of Armenian archaeologists from the National Academy of Sciences was astounding. The Temple City covers dozens of acres of land and the archaeologists have estimated that it will take about 30 years to fully excavate the whole complex. These promising new discoveries perhaps surpass the historic findings of Metsamor (that among other important finds included one of the earliest if not the earliest metal smelting foundries of the ancient world). In the November 2003 issue, the prestigious scientific magazine Nature published an article by scholars Dr. Russell D. Gray and Dr. Quentin D. Atkinson [11.27.2003] verifying the origin (13 years after the publication by the Scientific American of Indo-Europeanist linguists -- Dr. Vyacheslav Ivanov's and Dr. Thomas Gamkrelidze's detailed work on the origins of The Indo-European Language and the Indo-Europeans) of the proto Indo-European language in the Armenian Plateau. The scholars come to the conclusion of the Indo-European origin in the Armenian Plateau and the immediate nearby areas by using the empiric method of an "analysis of a matrix of 87 languages with 2,449 lexical items produced an estimated age range for the initial Indo-European divergence of between 7,800 and 9,800 years BP. These results were robust to changes in coding procedures, calibration points, rooting of the trees and priors in the bayesian analysis...the finding hints that farmers in -- what is now Turkey -- [and is in fact historically, ethnically and linguistically Indo-European Armenia-Armenian Plateau - Ararat is also today in "what is today Turkey" - ancient Armenia cleansed of its native population through a horrific genocide- yet nevertheless ARARAT will eternally stand for Truth, for Armenia, for the Armenian people and for Human CIVILIZATION... - G.N.] drove the language boom - and not later Siberian horsemen, as some linguists reckon." (see the noted article in Nature).

Sumerians [who called themselves Shinars -- which is very similar to the Armenian Shinarar -- Builder...] were among the earliest Armenian settlers who initially inhabited Armenian Highland, later expanding into Northern Mesopotamia and eventually spreading the great Armenic Civilization further south into Lower Mesopotamia. The Armen-Sumerian (Suberian) migration took place between the VIth and IVth millennia BC. The Shinar[ar]s erected great temples or ziggurats in the magnificent cities of Ur (Ar) and Uruk (Arak). The Armeno-Sumerian contribution to the world civilization is utmost important. The Sumerians among many other things invented world's first alphabet, which quickly spread to other lands and peoples. The Sumerians were also the ones who first used the round wheeled carts and chariots (the worlds oldest carts or pulling wagons were unearthed in the town of Lchashen in the Sevan basin of Armenia - the carts have remarkably been relatively well preserved and date back to 1800 BC! making them the oldest discovered).

The wheel, the horse, the cart and later the chariot gave the much needed mobility and speedy transport that enabled the relatively rapid spread of culture and civilization from one place to another. The Sumerians had a complexes and advanced socio-economic culture of the time that was not matched for centuries. The Armenid Sumerians (Shinar-ars) built monumental and colossal temples or

ziggurats which symbolized the power and the glory of the Sumerian culture. The Sumerians in their quest for the best architectural types invented the arch, which became the focal point of traditional Armenian architecture for the millennia to come.
THE UNIVERSAL PRIEST BUILDERS
THE ARMENIAN MASTER BUILDERS HAVE BEEN TRADITIONALLY CREATORS AND
INNOVATORS IN THE ETERNAL QUEST OF HUMAN PROGRESS AND EXCELLENCE
The great Armenian civilization of Sumer was inherited and continued to progress under the powerful Armenian kingdoms of Mitanni and Haiasa (ethnically and linguistically tied to their Indo-European kinsmen -- the Hittites) in the Second Millennium B.C.
F L O O R P L A N O F M I T A N N I A N P A L A C E A N D T E M P L E
The Armenian legacy of Sumer-Hurrian-Hyksos heritage in the second millennium B.C. had already developed a rich architectural style. This in turn spread and influenced the nearby cultures of ancient Near East. Building techniques and architecture as such reached a high degree of development during the period of the Araratian (Urartian) Kingdom of Van (XIIIth -VIth centuries BC).

The Armenians of Ararat built palaces and temples characterized by intricate friezes and interesting construction in the Capital -- Tushpa (Van), Haikaberd, Toprak-kale and other parts of Ararat. The culture of the Kingdom as a whole strongly influenced the cultures of the Iranian tribes and kingdoms, the Scythians, the Cimmerians and the Achaemenid Iranians. The great temple of Musasir-Ardini, the proto-type for the later Greek columned (Doric) and later on Etruscan (who incidentally are regarded by some scholars of having connections to Ararat because early Etruscan culture bears striking similarities, perhaps strong influences, from Ararat) and Roman temples was one of the greatest achievements and advancements of the Kingdom of Van-Ararat. They founded the fortress-cities of Argishtikhinili, Teishebaini, and Erebuni on the plains of Ararat. Argishtikhinili, was later to become Armavir, one of the greatest cities of the Armenian state, while Erebuni is now Yerevan (older form -- Ērevan) - the capital of the Republic of Armenia (a small portion of Historic Armenia).
