|England's Stonehenge - an alien |
landing docks or Pagan worship
Not much was written about this Korea's Stonehenge structure except that it was built in 2012. So, it is still quite a new attraction in Korea. Here is the excerpt of its history as written on the signboard at the Korea's Stonehenge, "Stone circles all over the world are the remains from the era of spanning from the New Stone Age to the Bronze Age. Huge stone are spread in a round shape. Their shape vary from a formation where indigenous rocks are simply spread out to piling up stones whose corners are rounded or soften. There are many remnants of such structure in the Atlantic Ocean area of Europe. Famous one are located in Stonehenge and Evalina in England, Erlanique and Carnac in France. Furthermore, they are also remains in Sine, Saudi Arabia and Iran, in Deccan plateau and Assam in India, Minusinsk in Southern Siberia, Ganshusheng in China, Hokkaido and northeast region of Japan. Considering the methodical arrangement of artificially carved stones based on their detailed geometrical structure, it seems that they were constructed for an important use but what that use was is not clear. There are many theories including some odd opinions that they were the landing docks of aliens spaceships or cattle pens. The most convincing theory is that they were places for religious or astronomical observation. Studies on the shape, reason for use and drying method on the site had been continuing to this date".
I wonder why anyone would want to build a Stonehenge here! Nevertheless, we had fun taking photograph of the Stonehenge on a bright sunny chilly day. It sure looks very different from night. The water in the surrounding area had frozen and we got to try our luck to become god to walk on water but failed, as we were too heavy to be one. Here are some pictures I took at Del Pino Golf and Resort:
