10 Most Enigmatic Places on Earth

I am sure all of you must have heard about various locations in the world but what I bring to you is a list of places about which there are still speculations and their existence is not entirely logical so to speak.

So compiled here is a list of some of the most enigmatic places on earth. Do share your thoughts in comment section.

 

Machu Picchu

This is one of the most preserved places of Peru and was apparently built in 1450 CE

Baalbeck

This place is famous for the three temples and the wall that surrounds them. The wall is built with the Stone of the Pregnant Woman, some of them weighing as much as 1000 tons!

Easter Island

It is famous for the stone structures that are present there. Some that weigh more than 86 tons. There were actually so many of these structures that they were later moved onto the perimeter of the island and places upon stone slabs!

Stonehenge

Built in 2500 BC, the Stonehenge is one of the most amazing prehistoric monuments. It has been remodeled quite a lot but it still maintains the same spell bounding factor in itself!

The pyramid of Ghiza and Sphinx

Although the pyramids have been the center of attention for quite sometime now, one still wonders and gets awed at the spectacular magnificence of these structures and what maths would have been involved when coming up with them!

Underwater ruins of Japan

In 1995 a swimmer in Japan went further across the shore and found what appeared to be a whole lot of man made structures under the water that were found to be 5000 years old! Amazing isn’t it!

The Stone Spheres

Since the 1930′s in Costa Rica, archeologists have been coming across these stone spheres in all different sizes and some as heavy as 16 tons!

Chichen Itza

This is supposed to be the place where the famous Mayan civilization presented the rain God with still-beating human hearts as part of a ritual of theirs. The same civilization that predicted the end of the world in 2012. Creepy eh!

Tiahuanacu

This particular structure in Bolivia is famous particularly because it has been standing for 17000 years now and apparently was made using some technology that no longer exists! Interesting I say!

The Nazca Lines

Considered to be one of the most amazingly mysterious places in the world, the Nazca lines in Peru are these huge pictures made in the plains apparently drawn by some giant hand. Given their form, they are certainly not man made!
