    Hi,

    Having reflect the same meaning of had, in below examples?

    'Having defeated pomphy Ceasser proceeded to the streets''

    ''Having heard the news I stepped down the tower''

    So it can (having) be used instead of had. Right? Please light some ideas..

    thanks in advance..

    Not really. Having done something >> after something is done, something else occurs in succession.

    You would have to reword the sentences with "had":

    Caesar had heard that he had defeated Pompey before he went to the city.

    I had heard the news before I left the podium.
