Abstract

The last year author described the system of sacred triangles around Babožnica in the lower Zagorje region northwest of Zagreb in Croatia. In this article author gives further space analysis of the reconstructed sacral points and gives their mythological interpretation. The author concludes that the locations of the sanctuaries are connected with the Slavic calendar. This calendar and space points are in the myth connected with the cult of sacred wedding of Mara and Jarilo. After the wedding Jarilo is sacrificed and killed. This act shows some connection with a cauldron.
