Benben Stone The sacred stones are very common in all the ancient cultures of the world from menhirs to mysterious pyramids like the Benben stone , these sacred stones were revered as having some kind of hidden power, which is still a mystery that a simple rock can become sacred when there are millions all over the Earth.
The Benben stone, according to the beliefs of the mythology of Heliopolis (ancient Egypt), was the representation of the primordial hill, the one that gave origin to everything known, the first ray of light from Ra when he arrived on earth and other sacred attributes and religious character were attributed to this sacred stone.
Most likely the pyramidal shape of the Benben stone was a reference for the construction of various monuments such as conical obelisks. Benben Rock is believed to have originally been more of a cone-like shape, but was later reshaped to resemble a pyramid.
There are many attributes in which Egyptian mythology refers to this sacred stone, relating the rock to the rising sun and the Bennun bird perching on top of the Benben. But mythology are those myths which it is not known if they are true like legends, so a great variety of myths revolve around this pyramid-shaped Benben stone and which has been venerated as if it were something sacred, making reference in some of the hieroglyphs to the fact that the Benben fell from the sky.
Many researchers claim that there are multiple representations of this stone throughout Heliopolis (Egypt), but it is believed that the primordial stone must have been a meteorite that fell in prehistoric times and was later venerated as if it were something sent by the gods.
