Hello all,
I'm looking for a bit of help with something I briefly saw in a book over the weekend. I was at Barnes & Noble and I was looking over a book who's name escapes me at the moment. As I was flipping through I noticed a picture of a ruin in Syria that I first thought was Mnajdra or Tarxien of Malta. The similarities of the architecture appeared to be very similar, granted I'm not all that knowledgeable about Malta or Syria so I could be way off base here.

Now what I'm getting at is this, I can't find any images of the megalithic structures from Syria that first caught my attention, and I can't find images of Tell Madick or Tell Murebut (both mentioned in my book of ancient mysteries, no images either).

Anyone know of ruins in Syria that appear to look like this:

I would like to investigate this further as I've noticed one or two other architectural similarities between the temples in Malta and Gavrinis Cairn as well as those Syrian ruins, but would like to take it one step at a time.

Thanks for any assistance!

I think one of the things that is hammering your research is that they changed the spelling of the names... 'Tel' instead of 'Tell."

Can't find anything to help... but are you familiar with this megalith site?

There's lots to explore there.
