Unravelling The Oldest Temple In The World: Göbekli Tepe

Religion is something that has always been a key part of man, right from the stone age days to the 21st century modern day age. Temples are places built or set up mainly for people to be able to go there freely and practice their religion in peace and after some in-depth archaeological research, it has been ascertained that the oldest temple in the world is the Göbekli Tepe (which is Turkish for Belly Hill). This ancient site is situated in the Southeastern Anatolia Region of Turkey and is not too far from the main city of Sanliurfa. The temple has an approximate height of 50 feet while being about 1000 feet in diameter.

The oldest vestiges of pre-historic Cambodia (stone made tools) were found in the cave of Laan Spean in Battambang with evidence suggesting the cave was inhabited around 6,000 years ago. Information is scarce although it is known that some pre-historic groups occupied caves, while others occupied large earthen mounds in lowland areas. These groups lived through rice cultivation and animal husbandry and practiced animism, worshiping both the spirits of the land and their ancestors.
