Below I show the alignment of the Kaaba at Mecca with the tallest mountain in the Arabian peninsula , as also through the vertical direction with the direction the Bethlehem star rises - when Jesus was born(not Mohammed). This is Arcturus. This is the direction of Kabul and Alexandria Prophthasia. Extending the Arabian mountain direction in the opposite direction we are led to the birth place of Alexander the Great - Pella. Egyptians called him son of Amun Re. But after conquering a lot of land in Asia and Afghanistan, he does not go on to India. Why not? The direction to the mountain aligns very well with the rising azimuth of alpha Centauri. Canopus also rises in a slightly larger azimuth. We thus have an alignment more or less with the 3 of the 4 brightest stars. The other is Sirius. But due to precession this only occurred when Jesus was born.





What is the scope of all these star alignemnts?

From wiki on Jesus:

"Isa known as Jesus in the New Testament, is considered to be a Messenger of God and the Masih (Messiah) in Islam who was sent to guide the Children of Israel (banī isrā'īl) with a new scripture, the Injīl or Gospel.
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Like all prophets in Islam, Jesus is considered a Muslim (i.e., one who submits to the will of God), as he preached that his followers should adopt the "straight path" as commanded by God."

From wiki on Kaaba:

"The Kaaba (Arabic: al-Kaʿbah "The Cube"), also known as the Sacred House, is a cuboid building in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. It is one of the most sacred sites in Islam."

"The Ka'ba is located inside the Masjid al-Ḥarām (Sacred Mosque) in the center of Mecca. It is a cuboid-shape structure which is made of granite quarried from nearby hills. Standing upon a 250 cm marble base that projects outwards about 35 cm. It is approximately 13.1 m high, with sides ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Three pillars stand inside the Kaaba, with a small altar set between one and the other two. Lamp-like objects (possible crucible censers) hang by a rope above the platform. An enclosed staircase leads to the roof."

"According to Islamic tradition the Kaaba was re-constructed by Ibrahim. It is stated in the Qur'an that this was the first house that was built for humanity to worship Allah."

So how accurate is the orientation of this structure as shown by Google Earth, can these observations be confirmed?
