We all are aware of the lost city Atlantis, right? The scholars discovered the ruins of 5,000 years old city in the Yonaguni Jima, Japan. There are many researchers who believed these ruins are related to the Jomon culture, but others disagree with that. They assume it to be the doings of a natural disaster. Even today when some ancient city ruins are found in the sea people automatically starts connecting it with the city of Atlantis, a mystical city that was submerged into the ocean. But what makes this discovery so important? It was the arched entryway and stone staircase which was discovered that is very hard to explain because a natural phenomenon couldn’t shape such things. What do you think? The next one is really interesting.
The Legend Of Atlantis
There is no question if a person would say that the City of Atlantis is one of the biggest mysteries on this planet. Plato, the Greek philosopher wrote about this utopian society which sunk in the ocean in a single day. According to National Geographic, very few scholars believe that at some point a huge mystical city existed that consisted of several giant and exotic animals. However, Robert Ballard, an ocean explorer suggests that believing in a city that was submerged in the ocean is “logical” because of the several natural disasters like tsunamis and volcanic eruptions that did take place might have disappeared the nation. Whatsoever is the case, even today, the Lost City of Atlantis remains the biggest mystery to us. Click next to be more surprised.
Mystery Hill is famously known as America’s Stonehenge mostly because it was created from the stone, believed to be a 4,000-year-old megalithic astronomical system created by the Native American people. Some even say that this site is the lost monastery of migrant Irish monks and some add that it was just an accidental work of 18th and 19th-century farmers. What to believe? We have no idea. This ancient site is located in Salem, New Hampshire and is considered to be the oldest archeological site in America. According to Atlas Obscura, this place has several small stonewalls standing in a series with some odd arrangements, and few underground chambers. The question is who built them and for what purposes? Don’t ask us we have no idea.
Saksaywaman Fortress Walls
This whole structure weighs more than 200 tons. The Saksaywaman Fortress Walls in Cuzco, Peru even predates the Incan empire, surprisingly researchers haven’t been able to decide the date in which these amazing structures were made. You can see how perfectly these stones fit together. We all know that human in the past didn’t have any technology but still they were able to create this astonishing structure. How? Even the scholars have no idea of it. But there is a very local legend that goes with this site, according to which those who built it extracted a liquid from a local plant present at that time which made these stones light in weight which made these stones easy to carry. Archeologists believe that this site was an ancient temple and several religious ceremonies were performed back then. If still, you aren’t amazed then number 20 would surely drop your jaw.
The Stone Spheres
In the past, lived several stone carvers in the Diquis Delta of Costa Rica who carved out hundreds of huge stone spheres that are considered to be the most amazing works of craftsmanship. These stone spheres are nearly perfect in shape. These mystical spheres are related to the Isthmo-Colombian region which is believed to be carved out from granodiorite (a type of igneous rock found in that particular region). Some of these spheres weights as much as 16 tons and are over 2 meters in diameter. When researched further the placing of these stones were found to be leading the tribe’s house location. Today, several of these stones could be found in private gardens of rich people and due to that reason, it becomes very difficult for the researchers to gather any new information about these sphere stones. What do you think they were used for?
