Top: this is a composition of photos about the Ancestral City of Punt.

Popular settlements at the time of Atlantis where probably “Stilts”, homes built on wood poles.
The small photo at the bottom left, features homes of Punt from the Temple of Hatshepsut in Luxor, Egypt, this because the Egyptian Queen Hatshepsut made an expedition there. You can clearly see that there was so much water that fish could swim under the houses. Runn of Kutch and the Island of Kathiawar in Gujarat, the main islands of Atlantis, at that time during the rainy season had frequents flooding, and still today have large area of inhabited swamps.
The homes in the Runn of Kutch today, visible at the center left of the composition, are very similar to the ones of Punt but now are made for the desert, without poles, this is because the climate begun to change at the time of Atlantis so less water from the melting glaciers and the wood poles supporting the homes where no longer necessary.
In this part of India, large cities are built in between the roads linking Pakistan with India (Bhuji, Ahmedabad), most of the coastline of Gujarat is not as important as in our maritime past. Is interesting to notice that according to recent studies, the city of Mumbai will be just another settlement to sink into the ocean because of the climate changes after: Atlantis, Dwarka and the sunken city of Khambhat.
Even in modern history books we read that Punt was in Ethiopia, Sudan or Somalia, but in this part of Africa there always been large spaces of dry land, and no big glaciers like the Himalaya and monsoon like the ones flooding the North-west of India, therefore it is an absurdity to think of a civilization built on a swamp near the sea, it was just illogic for Central Africa, to built on a swamp with so much dry land available. Some writers of history should have done some practice in the construction industry or in agriculture.
The photo top right, we see the people of Punt while receiving the Egyptian Queen Hatshepsut, they clearly show Indo-european features.
Among this people is visible a quadruped like a small horse used to carry goods, like the ones very common in Gujarat as seen in the photo at the center right.
Below, from Jean Capart, a book of high interest regarding the origin of the Egyptian religion.
The following writing below said that according to historians the people of Ethiopia, Sudan or Somalia, presumed to be Punt, were teaching the basis of religion to the primitive Egyptians. There is also a vague mention of some African invading tribes, but is not clear from where this “Invaders”, the future Egyptians, suppose to arrive from. The Egyptian religion appear to have origin from a complete different prospective, what is said on this writing does not fit in the frame of the historic evolution of mankind.
In the XXI century history books are just reproducing the same framework of the last 200 years of Europeans mindset regarding ancestral traditions.
Below, notice the parts in yellow:
So, if this were true on the origin of the Egyptian Religion, today we would have old civilizations in Central Africa with Temples and Tombs similar to Ancient Egypt, nothing of that age and with those features has been found to prove this. As a matter of fact, the site of Lalibela, in Ethiopia, has certainly been built by Indians because the technique and style is a copy of the Temple of Ellora in India. Possibly the idea was to expand in Africa the colonies of Atlantis, the real date of construction of Lalibela is not known. The attribution to Christian people building churches with a design like in Ellora does not compute, at the top of this temple there is a carved cross, just another simulation of the Complex of Mount Girnar in Gujarat, India. We have no other records of civilizations so advanced capable to teach the basis of religion to the Egyptians.
The three religions of Abraham, from the very same God Brahma of India, are originated from the Vedas books then adapted to local populations of the Middle East. Unfortunately these three religions consider themselves superior beings who can live a life apart from animals and plants. This firm distance from nature taken by these groups is an historical mistake, consequences are well known today when we are destroying the fabric of our environment and risking a total self-distruction. Climate Change begun at the time of Atlantis as a sign of God, but we did not learn from our past.
The knowledge of the ancient people was different from our order, they knew things that we ignore, and today we know things that they did not know.
As we live in Maya, the concept of knowledge is just an illusion in itself.
Africa today, like in the past, is used as a decoy to divert attention away from India. Ethiopia was used in the past by merchant to confuse trade competitors interested in the rich land of Punt, but the real location was in India, later this name has been used for the Indian State of Pun-jab.
Top, from the same book of Jean Capart,Punt was called by the Egyptians: “The Land of the Gods”, a place unique, a place like the fulcrum of the world, the “Axis Mundi” of the entire planet.
Read this passage below about the land of Punt, notice the existence of the Indian made Frankincense, a product often brought to Egyptian Pharaohs from Punt, and extracted at the mouth of the River Indus
“In the summer of 1493 BC Queen Hatshepsut (Matkara) of Egypt (ca. 1503–1480 BC) sent a fleet of ships on a seafaring trading expedition to Punt Ta Netjer (the sacred land of Punt, ‘God’s Land’) in search of valuable products including myrrh, frankincense, ebony and ivory. Hatshepsut was not the first pharaoh to trade with Punt. The Egyptians had commercial relations with Punt as early as the Fifth Dynasty (ca. 2470–2350 BC), and maintained trade sporadically for over 1,000 years, until trade lapsed in the Twentieth Dynasty (ca. 1190–1077 BC). Most commentators have assumed Africa (Ethiopia, Sudan, or Somalia) as the location of Punt, but Giri (2008) suggested that Punt lay to the east, the Indus Valley of Pakistan and the present-day State of Gujarat (Kutch and Saurashtra) in India. If the Egyptian idea of ‘Punt Ta Netjer’ is considered as derived from Sanskrit sources, the word Punt might echo the word Panch (= five), referring to the region of the five rivers, as in the Panjab of Pakistan and India. Alternatively, it might connote the word panka, as in ‘mud, earth or clay’, possibly referring to Mata-na-Madh, or simply Madh (also called Mhurr), an important location near the mouth of the Indus, in Lakhpat Taluka, western Cutch, Gujarat in India, famed and mined for its sacred mud in the form of fossilized coal and resin (Ashapuri dhoop, a fragrant incense with a sweet and pervasive aroma). At Mata-na-Madh is situated the main ancient temple of goddess Ashapura.
In the record of Hatshepsut’s expedition, of the four named representatives of Punt (Irem, Nemyew, Parahu and Ati) it is Nemyew, the chief of Saurashtra (renowned for frankincense) who interests us here. This Nemyew could well be the same as Nemiyahu (mighty Nemi) or Aristanemi (i.e. Neminath), the 22nd Jain Tirthankar and cousin of Krishna, lord of Raivata or Mount Girnar.
If Moses, when wandering in the desert, travelled as far as Saurashtra (as Punt), possibly even with one of the Egyptian royal trading expeditions, where Girnar/Junagadh (as the capital of Saurashtra) would most likely have been visited, he could well have returned to Egypt with the Vedas. This possible Indian connection with ancient Egypt could then explain the shift in Egyptian religion to sun worship, which happened about 1350 BC when Amenhotep (Akhenaten) established the new capital of Akhenaten and enforced the monotheistic worship of the sun (Ra). But after his death, both Akhenaten and Akhenaten’s reforms were abandoned (Giri 2008).
Mr Claude Hill, Agent to the Governor-General in Kathiawar, wrote (Ryley 1913) that: ‘There has indeed, from the earliest times, been direct and almost continual ocean traffic between Egypt, Arabia and East Africa on the one hand and the Province of Gujarat on the other, and, both in its population and in its customs, Kathiawar shows very definite traces of Egyptian, African and Arabian influence.”
