A series of digs have opened Gordium as one of Turkey's most revealing archeological sites. Excavations confirm a violent destruction of Gordion around 675 BC. A tomb of the Midas period, popularly identified as the "Tomb of Midas" revealed a wooden structure deeply buried under a vast tumulus, containing grave goods, a coffin, furniture, and food offerings (Archaeological Museum, Ankara). The Gordium site contains a considerable later building program, perhaps by Alyattes, the Lydian king, in the 6th century BC.
Many gateways show iconography of "Staffed Gods" that also spreads to some oversized vessels, indicating an importance to the culture. This iconography is most present on the The Gateway of the Sun.
The engravings that decorate the gate has some astronomic connotations

I'm trying to lean about these doorways.

My curiosity is about what these "gateways" or "doorways" represent.
This is in no connection to the movie Stargate, so lets not go there.
I'm reading The Book of Knowledge: The Keys of Enoch and there is reference to gateway locations on the Earth where the arch angels access the human conciousness and they are located on a powerful magnetic grid. Don't quote me on that - I'll go back to the book and find the exact reference and post it later.
The Sacred Mount Canigou
Sitting equidistant between these two Magdalene towers is the sacred Mount Canigou, dedicated to John the Baptist. This great mountain was an important ceremonial center for the ancient Celts, the Mithraic Sun cults, early Christians and medieval pilgrims. Canigou’s high iron content exudes a magnetic pull to time’s eternal spiritual seekers, similar to Sedona, Mt. Shasta, Devon, England, Rennes le Chateau, Teotihuacan and other places with iron-rich red earth. My personal theory is that the iron in our blood interacts and resonates with the iron in the earth. Many hidden mysteries permeate the region between these two mysterious towers of Magdalene.
(Author’s note: The full title is The Sworn Book of Honorius of Thebes, or Liber Juratus, (Book of the Laws). According to author Joseph H. Peterson, “…..it is one of the oldest and most influential texts of medieval magic.” The Sworn Book lists the 100 sacred names of god and 42 angels, each representing a letter of an alchemical alphabet. The sacred names and letters constitute the vibrational aspect of Cabballistic initiation rites. Also listed are specific herbs and aromas suggested for purifying the archetypes of the twelve zodiac signs.
The 2,500-year-old Midas Monument, where many linguists have been working to decipher writings inscribed in it, is being destroyed day by day because of earthquakes, acid rain and bird droppings.
Officials applied to UNESCO 20 years ago for the inclusion of the 17-meter temple from the Phrygians in the World Heritage List, but the applications were unsuccessful because the temple cannot be preserved.
Anadolu University Archaeology Department member Professor Taciser Sivas said the Phrygia civilization lived between the 9th and 7th centuries BC in the region of Eskişehir, Afyonkarahisar, Kütahya and Ankara in Central Anatolia, and the area known as “Phrygian Valley” has become a focus of interest for European travelers and researchers since the 19th century.
Sivas said the valley could serve tourists every season. “There are 11 monuments built for religious ceremonies in the Phrygian Valley. The most important one is the Midas Monument. The monument, built on a single rock, is unique in Anatolia. It was built with the order of the King Midas in Godion, the capital of Phrygia.”
She said the monument was called Midas since it is written on it, and that other writings on the monument had not been deciphered yet.
“The Phrygian language has not been deciphered so far. The number of scripts is too low. We don’t know its grammar structure. There also words similar to old Greek language in the writings on the monument. Many linguists and researchers have not been able to solve the writings. French and Italian linguists have been working for many years. But it is not possible to get a result in the near future because there are no new monuments, thus no new scripts.”
Application to UNESCO
Sivas said the Eskişehir Archaeology Museum had applied to UNESCO for the Midas Monument to be included on the World Heritage List nearly 20 years ago.
“Some projects need to be preserved and the environmental arrangements should be delivered to UNESCO. Nothing serious has been so far done for the protection of Midas Monument. We should first prove that we can protect it.”
Peruvian prophecy states that all the Americas were once united by a common spiritual tradition and leader, and that they will be again. We were anciently united as Amaru-ca or Ameru-ca, Ameri-ca, meaning the “Land of the Serpent”, during a time when the serpent was the universal symbol of mystical wisdom and spiritual power. One legend states that North and South America were named after a culture bearer known historically as Aramu Muru or Amaru (serpent/wisdom) the “Serpent (wisdom master) Meru,” with connections to the mythical Mount Meru, abode of the Demi-Gods.
