“Rujum el-Hiri” (Arabic: “Mound of the wild cats”), is a mysterious megalithic prehistoric site in the Golan Heights It consists concentric stone circles around a tomb, yet the whole complex is believed to be an observatory and stellar calender, perhaps related to cult of the Dead.

It’s Hebrew name (“Gilgal Rephaim”), suggest it was a cultic center believed by the Israelites to be related to the Biblical giants.
