The Jewish history book of 1.kings was written during the Babylonian exile ca. 550 B.C. 1 Kings 4:34: «From all nations people came to listen to Solomon’s wisdom, sent by all the kings of the world, who had heard of his wisdom.» This explains how king Solomon could be a very well known person in the Middle East, North Africa, Persia and India. A claimed seal of Solomon is used as a symbol in most synagogues around the World even today. This symbol is also used from Morocco in the West to Karnataka in India to the East. In Tandas around the city of Gadag the Banjaras paint this symbol on their doorsteps and floors. You should ask your self a few questions: Why? How did this tradition start? What was their original source of inspiration? There are other narratives to the origin of this symbol. But they must all be considered opinions, since there are no written ancient records that can be used to support their viewpoint. Scientists were able to decode Egyptian hieroglyphs and rediscover 4.000 years of the Nile valley’s history. How? With the help of Hebrew references to Egypt found in the Bible. There are 660 of them in New King James version. Only the city of Jerusalem have more references, the total of 815. You can read more in my book: “Gypsy and daughter of Israel Gor Banjara”.
