Don Stonehenge

Russian land is rich in “Places of power”. One of those Romanians-the Mountain between Volgograd and village Trehostrovskaya. Unique megalithic complexes, which consist of large menhirs, occupy an enormous area of several square kilometers.

During the Soviet Union the Don steppe sent a research expedition. In deaf steppes discovered a mysterious mound of perfect oval shape, which reached 200 m in length. But the expedition left here in a hurry find. Rumor has it that the head in sleep saw the priest, who warned not to touch the earth and not to dig up the mound, otherwise it will result in death for the entire expedition. The expedition resumed only in 2000-ies under the leadership of Anatoly Skripkin. The mound was excavated and found a very complex structure, in the center of the stones was lined furnace. Its height was reached more than 5 meters. Studies have shown that stone container was filled with wood, burned and covered with a layer of limestone. Thus, the priests of the fire-worshippers, the rulers of the cult ensured that the wood smoldering and not burning. Scientists have found that the construction of more than 3 thousand years, and it is a coeval of the Egyptian pyramids.

Near the mound, are not less mysterious constructions.This megalithic complex, is the same as the English Temple of the Sun or Stonehenge. Huge menhirs form a circle, and from it stretches a long way, and characteristically, too, framed by megaliths. The age of the find 7 thousand years, is the oldest building of megaliths in the world. Surprisingly, the megaliths of quartz and not of the typical species for this region.

Archaeologists suggest that the don Stonehenge is an ancient calendar, it was determined the exact time for planting. Another oddity that the menhirs mainly driven in the direction East – West, and on the ground lined with figures of a circle and a square. As you know, our ancestors personified the Earth as a square and the Universe as a circle. Another fact that similar structures erected in places of power. For centuries people believed in the healing power of such places. There is an assumption that this temple and the idols worshipped ancestors. Fully to draw conclusions too early, the study of these places continues today.
