World’s Top 5 Places Surrounded By Mystery
We have World 5 List presenting today!
5. Giant Stone Spheres of Costa Rica
One of the strangest mysteries in archaeology was discovered in the Diquis Delta of Costa Rica. Since the 1930s, hundreds of stone balls have been documented, ranging in size from a few inches to over 7 feet in diameter. Some weigh over 16 tons. Almost all of them are made of granodiorite, a hard, igneous stone. They have been made by human hands but experts can’t seem to agree on who made them, when they were made, or why…

Stonehenge is a rock formation located in England. A number of myths surround the stones, including people claiming the rock formation was put together by aliens ( we are not buying it ). Last year, researchers uncovered 17 new chapels and hundreds of archaeological features around the neolithic standing stones, including forms of monuments that have never been seen before, adding even more mystery to the mythical rock formation.
1. Göbekli Tepe
About twelve thousand years ago for some unknown reason, for the first time ever, hundreds and hundreds of humans gathered together in an organized fashion, to build an incredible shrine complex. It’s constructed of over 200 massive 20 ton stone pillars that were precisely fit into carefully arranged sockets in about 20 circular patterns. Why and how exactly remains unknown to this day…
