Talmudic curiosity?

A passage in the Talmud (Berachot 30a) equates "Talpiot"
mystically to a place of the highest worship, explaining that it
denotes :"the elevation [tel] towards which all mouths (piyyoth) turn." (The area where the subject tombs were found was only named "Talpiot" in the beginning of the 20th century.)
