There are places on Earth that have extraordinary mystical powers. Many scientists devote their lives to researching the unique properties of mysterious objects. Some of them are relatively well studied; others are just awaiting investigation. But even the most famous mystical places in the world do not fully reveal their secrets and give rise to fantasy.
Why does everything mysterious have such an attractive power for us? Most likely, every person has a belief in magic since childhood. Our rating contains the most mystical places in the world, in which there is still a place for miracles and riddles.
- Stonehenge, England
The most mystical place on the Planet is Stonehenge. It was built about five thousand years ago and is located in England. Who and how installed this grandiose complex? After all, its creator had excellent technical capabilities and knowledge in many sciences (mathematics, astronomy, architecture). What was the true purpose of the complex? Scientists have been struggling with these riddles for a long time.
Many speculations have been expressed – from the construction of Stonehenge by the druids to the intervention of magical power in the person of the sorcerer Merlin. Perhaps scientists will be able to unravel the secrets of Stonehenge, but for now, he keeps his secrets under lock and key.
2. Catacombs of Paris
The Catacombs of Paris are underground tunnels under the city, which is about 300 km. Historians estimate that there are over six million skeletons in the tunnels. At first, limestone was mined in the quarries, but when the Parisian cemeteries ceased to accommodate the dead, crypts began to be built. The city grew – an impromptu necropolis was under it.
Experts believe that because of the millions of homeless souls whose remains are in plain sight, a monstrous mass of dark energy accumulates in this place. The Catacombs of Paris are one of the most mystical places globally and one of the most terrifying.
3. Lake Roopkund
In India, there is a mystical lake Roopkund (“lake of skeletons”). It is located at a high altitude in the Himalayan mountains (5020 meters). Every year, after the snow melts, the shores of the lake are strewn with hundreds of skeletons. In the 19th century, this kind of “cemetery” was stumbled upon by pilgrims going to the holy place of Homkund. But scientists were able to see the inaccessible lake only in 1942. Subsequently, entire expeditions of researchers studied the mysterious place.
About six hundred skeletons were found along the shores of the reservoir. Most of them were male. What kind of carnage took place here about 800 years ago? Researchers have been solving this riddle for a long time. It will not be possible to find out who these people were and where they were going. But how they died is known – they were killed by hail the size of a cricket ball. The place was open, and people had nowhere to hide. Some of them were dragged into the lake, and the bulk of the dead remained on the shore.
4. Blood Falls
The one-of-a-kind Blood Falls located in Antarctica. The lake of the Taylor Glacier feeds the blood-red stream. For the first time, they started talking about this phenomenon at the beginning of the 20th century. Griffith Taylor, who discovered this miracle in 1911, suggested that algae in the lake under the glacier give this color to the water. After research, scientists found out that the oldest tiny organisms are present in the water. These microorganisms are more than one and a half million years old.
The water in the bloody waterfall contains iron and a large amount of salt. Its salinity is an order of magnitude higher than the salinity of ocean water. When it leaves the ice reservoir, the water reacts with oxygen to create such a frightening color.
5. City of Machu Picchu
Machu Picchu is the “lost” city of the Incas. It is located in Peru on the site of a mountain range (2450 meters). The city escaped plundering by the Spaniards. He managed to hide from the invasion in the remote mountainous region of the Andes. For a long time, no one knew about the existence of this mystical place. The city was found only in 1911.
Nobody knows what caused their disappearance. This place is lovely and has intense energy. The city of the Incas has not been fully explored and is full of undisclosed secrets.
