The world still has many unsolved mysteries and it seems that we won’t be solving them any time soon. There is much we can learn about the ancient world and the civilizations that came before use but there are still lots of questions without a relevant answer.
Here’s a list with some of the most mysterious and obscure places on earth:
It is located in Wiltshire, England and was built between 3000 BC and 2000 BC. It has passed through several changes over the last 5,000 years and there are plenty of theories related to the transport and placing of the rocks. Many tourists come here every year to face the facts of the living history.
The people who have lived in this remote island have built these 887 giant Moai Rock statues, the lightest one weighing 86 tons. No one managed to understand, until now, how the Rapa Nui managed to move these stone blocks from platform to platform around the island.
These are massive ground drawings that can be found in the city of Ica, approximately 200 miles south of Lima, measuring up to 660 feet. These weird lines can be seen on airplanes or from observatory towers. There is one explanation for them: it seems that they suggest a labyrinth for spiritual journeys.
The place was named Teotihuacan, which means “the place where god was created”, by the Aztecs who are believed to have lived here before the 1400s along with the Mayans.
Plain of Jars
There is an interesting theory about this place, according to which these jars that measure up to 10 feet in height, were used as burial sites. Also, a legend speaks about the fact that giants may have used them to store their alcohol.
These jars are set in clusters in the Xieng Khouang province of Laos, some of these clusters hosting up to 250 jars.
Great Pyramids of Giza
No one got closer enough to understanding the mystery around these pyramids because it’s still hard enough to believe the fact that the ancient world could be capable of accomplishing such an extraordinary feat.
This religious site is another unsolved mystery belonging to the ancient world. It is located in Urfa, Turkey and was built in 10,000 BC, before the Great Pyramids by 7,000 years. There are many questions that deserve an answer but it seems hard to unravel what time has hidden.
