The above image is that of the Stonehenge Monument, which most of you may know.
Like many other world-famous monuments this one too ‘Shot to Death’ by people of many hues, leaving no camera angle available anymore!!
This monument is said to be 5000 years old.
It’s a great enigma and nobody knows how it was built (A megalithic Circle) by transporting these massive stones.
Each stone is said to weigh 25 tonnes (55,150 lbs).
Number of stones
Said to contain approximately 100 massive upright stones placed in a circular layout.
The purpose of Stonehenge (Stone Circle) remains shrouded in mystery.
Some say it was used as a burial ground and many said the stone arrangement is used as a solar calendar (observatory) since the monument entrance faces the rising Sun. (Summer Solstice)
