As Darragon recounts, the towers are found in what is known as the ”Tribal Corridor” between Central Tibet and China. This area has been inhabited time out of mind by a distinctly varied assortment
of tribes, often categorized in Chinese ancient texts as the Quiang Ren.............The oldest towers are those found at the highest altitude,
in Kongpo in the southeast of the Tibetan Autonomous Region.
As the Smithsonian article relates, many theories have been put forward. Some say the towers were defensive in nature, that this was a lawless land subject to internecine raiding and invasion from outside. Indeed, many of them seem to have been designed for that purpose, as integral
features of fortified hamlets. The entryways of some towers were several meters above ground level (like the towers built by the Irish monks to safeguard themselves against Viking raiders.)
... the star tower ... Eight outward and eight inward pointing corners, all sixteen corners of both towers battered back at precisely the same angle.
"Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.
Twin epitomes of the star tower concept, the Remede towers, built around 1200 AD. Eleven meters (36 feet) wide at base, thirty meters (almost 100 feet) tall. Eight outward and eight inward pointing corners, all sixteen corners of both towers battered back at precisely the same angle. Well-fitted stonemasonry. Marvelous.

why do you link two unrelated topics to create misleading information?
Are the towers related to STARGATE just because they are built in Star formation???
What relation does the so called Top Secret document you posted regarding Stargate (which any fool can prepare on an old type writer??)???
What relation does a coin depicting a Janus like image have with a stargate and with these towers??
Care to calrify??
