It’s huge, ancient, on the bottom of the sea … and not a natural formation. In 2003, a team of Israeli archaeologists were conducting a seabed survey upon the Sea of Galilee. Then they found this, and the room presumably got real quiet. So what is that giant rock monument under the Sea of Galilee? Because, up close, this huge mysterious shape on the seabed is actually made up of thousands of meticulously stones arranged in a pyramid measuring over 230 feet in diameter, standing 39 feet high, and weighing at least 60,000 tons – or roughly twice as big as Stonehenge and six times heavier than the Eiffel Tower.
It’s hard to pinpoint a possible civilization that could have built this thing, since scientists say it could be anywhere from 2,000 to 12,000 years old, meaning they don’t know anything about the underwater structure…
The only thing they are sure of is that mysterious architectural pile of rocks was first built on land before being flooded.
Up to now, we have no idea what its purpose was, either. One suggestion is that it might have been an artificial fish nursery. Another theory notes a similarity with ancient European burial sites. And still a third insists it’s Reverse Atlantis, destined one day to catastrophically rise from beneath the sea.
What is this mysterious giant rock monument under the Sea of Galilee? Any ideas?
