SIWA OASIS, EGYPT:


• The Discovery of the Timasirayn Temple / Amun Oracle Solar Equinox Alignments

The most important and famous archaeological and historic site in the Siwa Oasis of Egypt is the Amun Oracle, which sits atop the old city center mound of Aghurmi. In the desert 12km directly west, and across Lake Siwa, sits a previously mysterious and obscure construction known as Timasirayn Temple. Dustin T. Donaldson and Robynn Iwata spent a year watching the sunrise from this temple after noticing that the walls of Timasirayn were precisely aligned to the compass, which suggested an astronomical function for the building. It was during the sunrise of the spring Equinox of 2013 that the discovery was made — the Equinox sun emerged precisely over the Amun Oracle when viewed from the Timasirayn Temple. It also happens in the exact same manner on the day of the fall Equinox. This has happened unfailingly twice yearly since its construction many millennia ago. The conclusion is inescapable: the Timasirayn Temple was built in Pharaonic times (likely atop an even older, possibly pre-historic mound) as a solar calendar time-piece for tracking the year and the seasons. The associated Ancient Egyptian philosophic-religious conceptions necessarily follow. While solar alignments are found at sacred sites throughout the world, and draw crowds of thousands yearly, this shocking discovery of an Equinoctial solar-alignment between temples is actually the first of its kind known in Egypt.

•  The 'Amun Oracle Inner Sanctum Double-Window Alignment' Discovery and 'Ritual Festival' Theory

After discovering the precise Spring and Fall Equinox solar alignments over the Amun Oracle when viewed from Timasirayn Temple, The Source In The Sahara's Dustin T. Donaldson and Robynn Iwata wondered if there may be some sort of previously-unnoticed companion event happening at the Amun Oracle itself during the Equinox. Indeed, there is! The process for uncovering this second discovery began by going to the Timasirayn Temple at the sunrise. Of course, from here one is looking directly East at the Amun Oracle, over which the sun rises directly on the 2 equinoctial days of the year (one every 6 months). Later that day, we journeyed to the Oracle itself, to see the sun set (looking directly West) towards Timasirayn, thinking that we might see something interesting. However, there is no obvious 'setting-sun-viewing-platform' at the Amun Oracle. So, where to begin? We checked all of the potential locations and quickly determined that nothing of note can be seen toward Timasirayn Temple on the western horizon from the Amun Oracle/Aghurmi mound. However, as we moved deeper into the temple itself,
back to the two deepest rooms, we got a very big surprise indeed. . .
