PUMA PUNKU In western Bolivia lies an ancient temple that was constructed with such precision, some consider it proof of extraterrestrial visitation to Earth. Because of course, temples=aliens!! Just kidding!! Instead of using mortar, the temple was built out of blocks of stone that were custom-cut to interlock with one another - a task that would be considered highly skilled work even in modern times. 7. GGANTIJA Located on the island of Gozo off the coast of Malta, Ggantija is a megalithic temple complex that was made from enormous stones, some of which exceed 16 feet in length and weigh more than 50 tons. The Ggantija temples are not only the oldest of the Megalithic Temples of Malta, they’re older than the ancient Egyptian pyramids! 6. THE THREE STONES AT BAALBEK The Phoenician city of Baalbek, located in modern-day Lebanon, contains some of the most puzzling ruins of the Ancient Roman Empire. Sitting upon three massive stone blocks weighing upwards of 800 tons each is a 2,000-year-old temple dedicated to the Roman god Jupiter. The blocks were sourced from a nearby limestone quarry, but pretty much everything else regarding the temple remains a mystery. 5. LONGYOU CAVES Deep in the Zhejiang Province of China, in the village of Shiyan Beicun, are a set of caves that are at least 2,000 years old and which remained undiscovered until less than three decades ago. Since locals could remember, popular myths talked about the so-called “bottomless” properties of the area’s ponds. 4. MASUDA-NO-IWAFUNE Nestled among the hills of the Nara Prefecture of Kansai, Japan is a village called Asuka, which has origins in the Tumulus, or Old Mound Period, between 250 and 552 AD. In addition to being known for its Buddhist temples and shrines, Asuka is also home to a collection of strange stone carvings. These monuments are of an unknown origin and don’t fit with the Buddhist style of sculpture and construction that otherwise dominates the area. 3. THE STONE HEAD OF GUATEMALA Sometimes, the discovery of ancient artifacts or ruins causes even the most educated scholars to question history as they know it. In 1987, a notary, lawyer, and doctor of philosophy named Dr. Rafael Padilla received a photograph of a unique monolith that was supposedly located somewhere in the jungles of Guatemala. The picture, which depicted a large head carved out of stone, was reportedly taken in 1950 by the owner of the property it was located on. 2. GEORGIA GUIDESTONES Nicknamed the “American Stonehenge,” it has surprisingly modern origins. In 1979, a man wishing to conceal his identity sought the services of Elberton Granite Finishing Company in Elberton, Georgia for the completion of a monument containing instructions for the re-establishment of society, perhaps in the aftermath of an apocalyptic event. 1. XBOX-SHAPED QIN DYNASTY TOMB In early January of this year, Twitter user Xbao (who loves the XBox as you may have guessed) announced the alleged discovery of a Qin dynasty tomb bearing a striking resemblance to the logo of the Microsoft Xbox video game console. The photo quickly gained the attention of gaming enthusiasts, and the official Xbox Twitter account even posted a reply, jokingly stating “Ah yes, that’s the Xbox 220 BC.” Origins Explained is the place to be to find all the answers to your questions, from mysterious events and unsolved mysteries to everything there is to know about the world and its amazing animals!
