Some monuments on earth have made way straight from the travel books to the research labs and debates of the experts and historians. Like the character of Hamlet (perhaps only Shakespeare knew what was up to him), these creations are yet to be decoded unanimously. We will be presenting the curious cases of some of the most undefined landmarks of our planet (don't yawn, we are not sticking to the Stonehenge, pyramids, Easter island or the Taj Mahal): Go diving in the coast of the Ryuku Islands in Japan and witness a true marvel- the Yonaguni rock formations. Soaked beneath the sea is this wonderful monument with stone pillars, elaborate platforms and even rock carved steps. Discovered by a group of divers in 1987, the Yonaguni monument is a store house of mystery and awe.
The advanced heads on earth are still to come to an conclusion on whether it is a natural conspiracy or a human endeavour. The answers are perhaps blowing in the wind (Had you ever been there Mr. Bob Dylan?)The Nazca desert of Peru is much more than a sand abode, thanks to the pictographs (ideograms that conveys its meaning through its pictorial resemblance to a physical object) believed to be carved by the Nazca Indians sometimes between 200 BC and 700 AD. Known as Nazca Lines these art works portray the quintessential aspects of that time through the depiction of insects, animals and plants. Here the mystery is what was the purpose behind this elaborate effort sprawling at least 50 miles of land.
An ancient tomb and a prehistoric site with a history that starts from 3100 BC is lapped in the green surroundings of Ireland. That numbers make it some 1000 years older than the Egypt pyramids. Known as Newgrange, this tomb was made with earth, wood, clay, and stone and is a matter of wonder for its amazing design that can put modern physics into some serious competition. Frankly speaking, these words are not enough to describe their innate glory and the mystery quotient. You got to be there to decode the spell or just to enjoy their imposing presence. So, get ready to unveil the un-defined this winter!
