It’s often wondered why ancient peoples from all over the world, placed so much importance on the celebration of the solstice and equinox. It is estimated that they built hundreds (if not thousands) of huge megalithic structures, stone circles, temples, and secret inner rooms that aligned with the sun precisely at these times of year—across Europe, in Egypt, in North and South America, Easter Island, Australia, Asia, the Middle East, and many other parts of the world.
Most today see the solstice as a form of sun worship and pagan celebration to do with the seasons, and yet these sites are some of the most advanced astronomically, mathematically, architecturally, and spiritually, in history and even still today.
