Abakan Khakassia Russia Siberia Megaliths - Archaeoastronomy - Valley of Kurgans - Li Kitai - LexiLine Journal 304

To our LexiLine files under Russia at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LexiLine/files
I have added the file abakan.png [the graphic below] which contains my astronomical decipherment of two megaliths near Abakan, Russia.

As anyone can see at http://www.kiravan.com, the area of Abakan in Russia has some tremendous megaliths.

The megaliths of Abakan, Khakassia, Russia are located outside of Abakan in southern Siberia
above western Mongolia, halfway between Moscow and Vladivostok. Specifically, the so-called "Valley of Kurgans" or "Valley of Kings" is located 60 km west of Abakan.

As we can read at http://www.fact-index.com/a/ab/abakan.html
"Abakan (formerly Abakansk) is the capital of Khakassia in Siberia, Russia. It is located on the river Yenisei, 144 m. SSW of Krasnoyarsk, in lat. 54 deg. 20' N., long. 91 deg. 40' E.... Abakansk was a fortified town of Siberia, in the Russian government
of Yeniseisk. It was considered the mildest and most salubrious place in Siberia.

The place is remarkable for certain tumuli (of the Li Kitai) and statues of men from seven to nine feet high, covered with hieroglyphics."
Who were the Li Kitai?

Kit or Kitai is a Russian word meaning a group of stakes or stones.

As noted at http://www.bartleby.com/65/qi/Qitai.html, there is also a town and oasis Qitai (Kitai) in China in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, in the Dzungarian basin.

We are reminded here of the similarly named city Quito in Ecuador: "the present-day site of Quito was inhabited by the Quitus, a tribe from the Quechua civilization.... called the Kingdom of Quito in the Pre-Hispanic period, buildings in this ancient city were made of carved stone and sun-dried brick. Later, Spanish architects incorporated the same materials into their grandiose constructions."

The Quechua were of course the megalith builders of the Americas and we are certain that the Quitus and the Li Kitai were related peoples.

The decipherment that I have uploaded to our files is still provisional, however, since I do not have enough corroborating material from the Abakan site.

I have examined the photo of the megaliths at http://www.kiravan.com depicting the gate to the Valley of the Kurgans and find that there are figures carved on the megaliths together with cupmarks.

The cupmarks on the left smaller megalith would appear to mark Ursa Major. That same megalith has other figures carved on to, including a human face at Ursa Major and an animal face to the right of Ursa Major. To the left of the human face at Ursa Major there seems to be
a large round area marking the North Celestial Pole.

The right larger megalith would seem to mark Camelopardalis viz. Perseus on the other side of the heavenly gate, a gate known as the duat to the ancient Pharaonic Egyptians.

Again, these identifications are provisional and need corroboration down the road.

We wonder whether the name of Abakan or earlier Abakansk derives from the nearby Abakan River and whether that name relates to the Akkadian term Akann or Chinese termn Kwan, names applied to Ursa Major in ancient days.
