The ancient Pyramids in Giza, Egypt, were built as elaborate tombs for divine kings and date back to 2,550 BC.

8. Sphinx of Giza, Egypt

The Sphinx of Giza is commonly believed to be the likeness of King Khafre, with the body of a lion and the head of a Pharaoh. An often-discussed theory about the missing nose of the Sphinx suggests that Napoleon’s soldiers fired a cannon at it in 1798. However, this theory is questionable, as early sketches of the Sphinx without a nose have been discovered, which predate Napoleon’s expedition. Napoleon’s rampage.

Salisbury Plain’s Stonehenge landscape in England has turned into a popular destination for tourists. The purpose and method of construction of Stonehenge have long been a mystery.

Some theories suggest that it was built as a site for astronomical observations or as a place of healing, while others argue that it served as a temple for ancient religions.

    Simply incredible – then there is a blob of shifting sand in the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, (it does not dissolve, does not blow away, does not get hardened into mud when mixed with water etc). Some scientists say it is volcanic ash but it keeps shifting with the wind, grain by grain: for ever and ever! Its size is about a small hill when there is no wind.

    One I have personal experience with is the Bermuda Triangle. I have lived near or in it and have sailed and flown through and over it many times. Not once have I ever seen or experienced anything at all unusual. So for me, it s all BS. Ships and planes disappear all over the world all the time. Especially in the more heavily trafficked areas. That’s just the law of averages. The more traffic, the more will vanish.

    these are basic issues for example the triangle is not haunted, it has a high gravity force which would affect the plane resulting in a crash. ( the plane would fall in the water and would never be found.) another example is the iron pole, it was iron and isotope iron they had the same amount of protons so they were both identified as iron but one had alot more neutrons, neutrons do not have a charge so it is less likely to react. plus you have done your research wrong, the atlantis hotel is not located in mexico, it is located in the United Arab Emirates ( the picture is the exact same aswell so no i am not confused.) and the statues on rapa nui were carved from a huge rock that was there nobody moved anything.
    you should do some research before you post things like these ( no offense).

    Actually, it is not heard to guess how the stones were moved on Easter Island. The people died out, and were forced to resort to canabilism . This is because they used the logs from trees to more the stones in competition with each other. They used up all the trees, killing all the animals and plants living in the forest habitats, transforming the beautiful Island into a barren hell.
