Around the world, several mysterious structures and ruins exist the origins of which are shrouded in mystery. Information about why the Stone Age was built or how man-made ruins are submerged deep into the ocean have still to be uncovered even as humans explore the mysterious structures around the world.
These structures are located in places as diverse as Homestead Florida and Yonaguni, Japan along with many others that have kindled the interest of people. In the absence of accurate information about these structures, one can only confirm they are the mysterious structures and ruins around the world. The mystery that is surrounding these structures are unlikely to be revealed soon and we can only discuss them for being in the places described. Let us look at some of the mysterious structures and ruins which exist around the world.
Ruins, for me, are the beginning. With the debris, you can construct new ideas. They are symbols of a beginning. ~ Anselm Kiefer
The monumental instructions for the post apocalypse
One of the most bizarre and mysterious monuments exists on a barren knoll in northeastern Georgia and it wasn’t created during ancient times. It has been named as the Georgia Guidestones and is a combination of five 16 feet tall 20-ton slabs of polished tonight which has been inscribed in eight languages and includes Egyptian, Hindi, Swahili, and hieroglyphics.
It also has instructions for post-apocalyptic survivors who may have been dazed and looking to rebuild civilization. It has been designed to track the East-West migration of the sun throughout the year and has holes which allow gazers to locate the North Star. The Georgia Guidestones are reported to have been commissioned by an anonymous group the identity of whom is yet to be established.
Lake Michigan Stonehenge
When using sonar in search of shipwrecks at the bottom of Lake Michigan researchers was surprised to find what appeared to be an ancient 40 feet structure beneath the surface of the water which looked like an ancient Stonehenge. Some of the stones have been arranged in a circle and one appears to display stone carvings of a mastodon. The formation is believed to be as many as 10,000 years old which is familiar with the post ice age presence of humans and mastodons in the region. Michigan is already home to petroglyph sites and standing stones.
Underwater ruins in Japan
The southern coast of Yonaguni in Japan is home to submerged ruins which are believed to be around 8000 years old. Earlier some people believed that it was a geographic phenomenon but it has now been confirmed as a man-made structure because it has intricate stairways, carvings as right angles suggest. The discovery was made in 1995 when a sports diver strayed far off the Okinawa Coast with a camera in hand.
The Submerged Wonders Of Alexandria, Egypt
The city of Alexander the great lie of the shores of Alexandria and are believed to be the ruins of the Royal quarters of Cleopatra. A belief exists that earthquakes which occurred 1500 years ago were responsible for casting these structures into the sea along with artifacts, statues and many other parts of Cleopatra’s palace. The city of Alexandria is creating plans for offering underwater tours to this wonderful and is creating a subsurface Museum for visitors by leaving everything in its place.
The nature of catastrophe is, after all, reasonably unvarying in the way it ruins, destroys, wounds and devastates. But if something can be learned from the event – not least something as profound as the theory of plate tectonics – then it somehow puts the ruination into a much more positive light. – Simon Winchester
The Mysterious Stones Of Baalbek
The largest Roman empire ever constructed are not located in Greece or Rome but have their location in Baalbek, Lebanon. The Temple faced destruction under the Byzantine Emperor Theodosius but he managed only to destruct 54 of its columns leaving six standing even to this day. The ruins of Baalbek are beautiful but have been rarely visited because of the ongoing civil war in Lebanon. Fortunately, this majestic archaeological site has not been harmed by the mysterious war which never seems to end. Information about why this particular site was special for the Romans is not available but the mystery remains as to why the Romans quarried, moved and assembled so many stone blocks in this region.
