Hundreds of the most enigmatic ancient sites in the world align to the sun at the solstices and equinoxes, including Stonehenge, the Great Sphinx, and the statues of Easter Island.
Some of the greatest spiritual figures in history, such as Jesus, Osiris, Mithra, Krishna, and Quetzalcoatl, experienced major life events, such as their birth and resurrection, at these times.
They were celebrated by ancient Persians, Hindus, Maya, Inca, Native Americans, Druids, and Europeans as their most important days--and are still celebrated by billions of people today.
Why was the sun so spiritually important to these ancient people, and why did they align some of the most incredible ancient sites on Earth to it?
