Only belief makes magic possible

Stonehenge

“There are no accidents. Only unsolved mysteries” Unknown

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!!

Location

Wiltshire, England.

Age

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.

Weight

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.

Purpose

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)

Thank you for visiting my site and taking your time to read.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

    Visited this in august. They wanted to charge £25 per person ! Instead we drove a few miles to a place called woodhenge and walked across the fields and saw them for free.

      I can understand.
      For Indians this amount is equal to ₹2600.00, a huge burden.
      They always say….the amount is bare minimum used for maintaining the monument.
      You are clever indeed
      👍👍👍
