Circle Alignments on the Planet Amsterdam Island – Part 3 Strait of Hormuz Islands Abu Musa, Qeshm, and Hormuz – With Video of Post at the End

The Strait of Hormuz is the only sea passage from the Persian Gulf to the open Ocean. 

It is situated between the Gulf of Persia and the Gulf of Oman.

About 20% of the world’s petroleum passes through here, and it is considered one of the world’s most strategically important choke points.

This is a tense area, to say the least….

In my journey of awareness regarding this information, I have learned what to look for.  And I have found that islands on the planetary gridlines are extremely interesting. 

I will share with you what I found out about the Islands of the Strait of Hormuz, specifically the islands of Abu Musa, Qeshm, and Hormuz.  These islands are windows to a hidden history.

The island of  Abu Musa is contested between the United Arab Emirates and Iran.   It is administered by Iran as part of the Hormozgan Province.  It is the furthest Island from the Iranian coast, and is strategically important as it sits near the entrance to the Strait of Hormuz.  

I want to demonstrate to you that beaches with a symmetric curvature, and rocky features right next to the shore, as seen in this photo of Abu Musa, are common features in diverse places.  

Compare it with these similar-looking shorelines:

The Israeli side of the Dead Sea…


…Halawa Bay on the Hawaiian Island of Molokai…

…the Black Sea in Bulgaria…

…Lake Baikal in Siberia…

…and Shemya in the Near Island group of the Aleutian Island chain.

How about this comparison of the rocks on the shore of Abu Musa…

… the shore of Flowerpot Island, an island in Georgian Bay in the Province of Ontario…

…and Deadman’s Reef on Bahama Beach, located at West End on the Grand Bahama Island.

The island of Qeshm (formerly known as Kishm, or Kish) in the strait of Hormuz is the largest island in Iran, and one of the largest islands in the world.   An important trading center at one time, it is situated just a short distance off the coast of Iran. 

Qeshm, like the Hawaiian Island of Molokai, looks like the shape of a fish to me.

This is good place to insert the fact that Qeshm has the earth’s largest mammal, the blue whale, in its waters…

…as well as pods of dolphins that swim close by.  The dolphins of Qeshm.

Interestingly, in Cassell’s Bible, Qeshm was mentioned as a supposed site of the Garden of Eden.  Hmmm. 

Let’s take a look at what is found on the island.

It is called the Island of Seven Wonders, which include the Valley of the Stars, or Stars Valley, called one of the most amazing natural sites in the world.  Like everywhere else, I see ancient masonry here.

This view of the Valley of the Stars on Qeshm Island…

…reminds me of Bryce  Canyon in Utah.

…and Red Rock State Park in California.

The Hara forest is comprised of floating mangrove trees…

…and the area is a protected biosphere reserve for its ecosystem, with many tidal channels.

The Talla Wells are capable of holding water healthy and cool for a long time.  The locals say in the past, the number of these cisterns equalled the number of days in the year, and every day, one of the wells was used for water.

The Talla Wells reminded me of the Plain of Jars in Laos.  The Plain of Jars is a mystery, with thousands of huge jars cut from stone filling the landscape.

Some of the stone jars are gigantic!

And then there are the ancient Puquio Wells of Nazca in Peru.  This is a system of subterranean aqueducts, and most are still functioning.

This location on Qeshm Island…

…reminds me of the Emerald Pool in Guadelupe Canyon in Baja California, Mexico.

One more thing I would like to point out  before I leave the beautiful island of Qeshm, which is in a free zone, so a visa is not required to visit.  This photo is of Harbor Laaft on Qeshm.  These buildings most definitely have Moorish architectural features.

To support what I am saying, here is a picture of acknowledged Moorish architecture in Cordoba, Spain.  In particular, take note of the crenellation -the recurring pattern on the top of the building – in both pictures.  Also, there are five-lobed arches present in both pictures, as well as arches with no entrances or windows.

It’s even called the five-lobed Moorish arch.  More on this architectural style shortly.

Next, I wish to introduce you to Hormuz Island…the Rainbow Island of Iran.

The red color you see here in the road is red ochre, which has been used for ceremonial and artistic purposes throughout human history.

This is said to be the old Portuguese fort on Hormuz Island.  Supposedly built after the Portuguese Duke Alfonso de Albuquerque captured the island in 1507, and became part of the greater Portuguese Empire.

The Portuguese held on to the Island of Hormuz until 1622, at which time the British East India Company allied with the Persians, and successfully re-captured Hormuz.    Both the Dutch East India Company and the British East India Company were integral components in how the advanced ancient civilization was taken down.  This is a portrait of William Baffin, an English explorer who died of wounds sustained during the Capture of Hormuz.  Baffin Bay and Baffin Island are named after him.

Here is a photo of the vaulted arches of the so-called Portuguese fort on Hormuz…

…and the vaulted arches of the Seville Cathedral.  Seville was the capital of Moorish Spain.

Compared with this example of what is called “Spanish Gothic” architecture at Bryn Mawr College in PA that was torn down 8 years ago, with its vaulted ceiling, and five-lobed Moorish arches.  Demolition in modern times is the fate of many of these structures with heavy and enduring masonry.  Sadly, only to be replaced by buildings that are considerably inferior.  Like, I am watching a multiple-story apartment complex go up in the neighborhood where I work, framed with wood and particle board.

This style of vaulted arch is seen at Ft. Pulaski in Savannah, Georgia.


They want us to believe all of these architectural similarities were occurring during times across countries and continents during centuries when, according to what we are taught in history class, transportation was limited and communication was regional. 

I have found that falsely attributing structures as to their builders is a common practice in the cover-up of this ancient civilization.  Another example of this is the “Old Russian Fort” on Kauai, which looks like an ancient star fort to me.

One more thing before I leave the island of Hormuz.  There is a place called Deer’s Moor here, on a tiny island off the coast of Iran.

Like the Moors of Britain, I believe the memory of the People remains in the place.  This is Scales Moor in Yorkshire, called “Britain’s greatest limestone pavement.”

Here are a few more photos of Hormuz Island:

I will end this post here.  This is a long circle alignment.  I have been crossing further geographical distances in other posts than I have here, however, I believe what I found in this geographical location was noteworthy enough to focus this post exclusively on it.  As always, there is more here than what I have shared, but this serves as an introduction to an obscure, but fascinating, place.

I will pick up the alignment in the next post in Bandar-e-Abbes, Iran.

Circle Alignments on the Planet Amsterdam Island – Part 2 Gulf of Aden to Dubai, United Arab Emirates – With Video of Post at the End

The Gulf of Aden, also known as the Gulf of Berbera (also the name of a port city in Somalia, and where my last post ended), is bounded on the North by Yemen, the Arabian Sea and Guardafui Channel in the east, and Somalia in the South.

On one side,  the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait, located between southwestern Yemen and and northeastern Djibouti, connects the Gulf of Aden to the Red Sea.   This strait is of great strategic and economic importance.  For one thing, millions of barrels of crude oil are shipped through it every day. 

The country of Djibouti is located near a tectonic triple junction of three tectonic plates.  There are also two rift zones in Djibouti.  Volcanism is a recurring feature along planetary alignments.

Lake Abbe is a Salt Lake on Djibouti’s border with Ethiopia. It is located at the confluence where the three tectonic plates are pulling away.   I have also found many salt lakes on planetary alignments (see my post “Salt Lakes on the Grid”).

On the other side of the Gulf of Aden is the Guardafui Channel.  It is between the Socotra Archipelago and Cape Guardafui, the tip of the Horn of Africa (which is another name for this region).

The Socotra Archipelago is officially part of Yemen, with Socotra being the largest island.

Have you ever heard of it before? 

I first learned about Socotra several years ago when I watched a travel video about it that popped up as a Youtube recommendation for me.  I looked more into it at the time.  Otherwise I would never have heard of it before.

It is a UNESCO World Heritage Center, and is considered of universal importance because of its rich and distinct flora and fauna, most of which are found no where else.  It has also been called the most alien place on earth.

Dragon’s Blood Trees of Socotra

There are more anomalous things about the Gulf of Aden, but I will just leave you with this picture, if you wish to research its validity for yourself.  Just saying this is out there.  Personally, it wouldn’t surprise me if this is truth.  There is so much we haven’t been told about the world we live in, and that is actively kept from our awareness.

Next, we come to Mukalla, Yemen, a port city on the Gulf of Aden.

Mukalla is the capital of Yemen’s Hadhramaut Governate.  It is close to an ancient location, called Hadhrami, that served as the principal trading post between Africa and India. 

Hadhrami is also the name of the people that live in the Hadhramaut Governate, and are also in diaspora, living in scattered places around the world.  The Hadhrami have in their culture a tradition of sea-faring and trading.  At one time their presence and influence throughout in the Horn of Africa region was significant.  Here is a historic photo of some Hadhrami men.

This is a view of Mukalla from the water.  Take particular note of the big, block-shaped rocks in the foreground…

…compared with the big block-shaped rocks seen at Lake Chapala near Colima, Mexico.

This is a photograph of the massive canyon at Wadi Leysar in the Hadhramaut Province of Yemen.

And this is Courthouse Butte in Sedona, Arizona.  The best our historical narrative can come up with is that these are natural features.  I definitely do not buy that explanation.  I think “butte” and “canyon” are cover-up code-words for very ancient infrastructure.

Lastly before moving on, I will share this photo I found of what is called one of the oldest houses in Mukalla.  Interesting place to build a house….

Next the alignment crosses the Rub Al Khali, otherwise known as the Empty Quarter.  It is the largest desert in the world.  It encompasses most of the southern third of the Arabian peninsula.

A recent Saudi Arabian Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, Ali Al-Naimi, reported that the dunes don’t drift – that while sand blows off the surfaces, their essential shape remains intact.

Something tells me there is enduring infrastructure underneath all that sand….

Next, we come to Abu Dhabi, one of the seven Emirates that comprise the  United Arab Emirates (UAE).  Its capital, Abu Dhabi, is also the capital of the UAE.

This is what it looks like from above.  I find all the channels to be noteworthy, because the ancient advanced civilization was a canal-building civilization :

And here is a view of it from the water, with a nice rectangular beach-head…

…and a nicely-shaped harbor.

This is the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, and its elegant and sophisticated design features.  The date for construction is given as 1996.

I am comparing it with the Taj Mahal in Agra, India because they have the same style of domes.  

Yet the Taj Mahal was built in the mid-1600s as a mausoleum, according to the historical narrative we have been given. 

The sophistication and striking similarities of these two monumental works of architecture raise some real questions in my mind about how they were built – both then and now.

The next location the alignment crosses is Dubai, another Emirate, and the largest city of the United Arab Emirates.  You can tell just by looking at a map of the city that this is a unique place in the world.

Dubai is one of the world’s “Global Cities,” which means it is a city which is a primary node in the global economic network, with a focus on financial power, and high technology infrastructure.

This is the Dubai Museum.  It is said to be the oldest existing building in Dubai, and built in 1787.

The architectural style is reminiscent of buildings I have seen in African countries.  Shown here first is the Great Mosque of Djenne in Mali.  Djenne is said to be the oldest known city in sub-Saharan Africa.

And this is the Fasilides Palace in Gondar, Ethiopia.  It was built by the Solomonic Ethiopian Emperor Fasilides in the 1600s, and subsequently became the home of Ethiopia’s Emperors.

This is an aerial view of Dubai’s Old Town, the Bur Dubai.

Here are more photos of the architecture and canal system of Old Town Dubai.

I will end this post here, and in the next post will pick up the alignment as it goes across the Strait of Hormuz into Iran.
