    • Synopsis
    • The construction date of the “World’s First Temple” is thousands of years earlier than the most important symbols of ancient wisdom; such as the Stonehenge monument in England, or the Egyptian Pyramids.
      * What pushes the Neolithic human to create such a monumental sacred complex?  
      * Does the existence of such an architectural feat show that hunter-gatherer societies had been much more developed and well-
      * organised?
      * What tools did the builders of the temples use to erect 40-70 tons colossal blocks?
      * Could the monumental pillars and animal carvings be the mysterious symbols of a code waiting to be cracked for 12,000 years?
      * Does it hold any connection with the forthcoming civilizations?
      * In Göbeklitepe, were there ones with a higher consciousness and awareness, and did they leave us their knowledge as a heritage?
      The film aims to reveal the facts and discoveries rather than answering to those questions. In this manner, the intention is to leave the interpretation to the open-minded audience’s imagination.
