Mysterious pyramids are found all over the world, and nobody can really explain why. There are many explanations ranging the mundane, to the outrageous, to the supernatural. The most famous pyramids are the Egyptian pyramids, but the pyramids in South America, and Asia are just as fascinating, and mystifying. People still debate over how the ancients built such amazing monuments, some citing systems of pulleys, and immense manpower. Others claim that alien intervention is the only possible option. Read about the world’s most mysterious pyramids in this list.
The Yonaguni Monument is a large, submerged rock formation off the coast of Yonaguni. Yonaguni is one of the Ryukyu Islands, in Japan. A diver found the gigantic pyramid by accident. It looks man made but is believed to be 10,000 years old. No one can say for sure whether it’s natural or man made. After it’s discovery marine biologist Masaaki Kimura has spent the last two decades researching the monument. He believes the monument was carved thousands of years ago, when the monument was above water.
Kimura cites proof that there was human alteration, and even points out that there is writing on it. He claims that the monument is actually the last remnant of the ancient Japanese continent of Mu. Kimura claims to have also found roads, castles and more mysterious pyramids in the area. Stone tools have also been found near the site, as wells as pottery, and fireplaces. The tools date back to 2500 BCE. So we know for certain that the area was inhabited. The discovery was Yonaguni Monumental.
Archaeologists discovered the ancient ruins of one of Egypt’s most mysterious pyramids. What’s so mysterious about this is that contrary to most other Egyptian pyramids this one has smooth sides. It’s believed to have been the Egyptian’s first attempt at building a smooth pyramid. The structure is 3,700 year old, and dates back to the 13th dynasty. It was found near the Bent Pyramid, which is also a smooth sided pyramid which belonged to King Sneferu. The two pyramids were built around a thousand years apart from each other. One of the most interesting parts is that they found a block with 10 hieroglyphs on it, what they mean hasn’t been revealed.
Mysterious Pyramids Discovered In Antartica?
An amazing four four-sided pyramid found in Antarctica has confounded experts. The image was spotted on google earth, and looks like just a natural formation, but some people are taking as evidence that we used to live in Antarctica. Millions of years ago, Antarctica was actually covered in lush forests so it isn’t infeasible that humans might have lived there. However there’s no evidence the structure was man made. Not one, but three mysterious pyramids have been found there.
They appear to close resemble pyramids in Egypt that are man made. Some people have claimed that it’s actually just a nunatak. A nunatak is a peak of rock sticking out above ice. It’s possible this is just the triangular peak of a mountain, buried deep underground. It was found in a mountain region after all. Skeptics have claimed that the shape of the pyramid is too perfect to be natural, and that it’s unlikely a large pyramid, and two smaller ones right next to it would occur naturally.
Tiny Pyramid Discovered Underground In China
Small and mysterious pyramids have been found underground in China, underneath a construction site. It’s likely that the pyramids are tombs thousands of years old. It’s possible it comes from the Han dynasty. Nobody knows who was buried there, and nobody knows why. The pyramid was found in Henan, China, and has been named the Pyramid of Zhengzhou. It was found in a chamber that measures 100 feet long, and 26 feet wide.
Largest Pyramids Discovered In Europe?
An archaeologist in Bosnia claims to have discovered a giant pyramid bigger than the ones in Egypt. Turns out it’s not just one but several mysterious pyramids that have been discovered in the area. The biggest is known as the Pyramid of the Sun, and reaches heights of 267 metres. This makes it the tallest pyramid in the world. He also claims to have discovered nearby pyramids known as, the pyramid of the moon, Pyramid of the Dragon, the Pyramid of Love, and the Pyramid of Earth. Many archaeologists, including the European Association of Archaeologists have declared it a cruel hoax. There are currently 100 volunteers working to excavate the site, but it’s been claimed that they are actually just shaping it to look to a step pyramid.
Crystal Pyramid Below Bermuda Triangle
Two mysterious pyramids were discovered by Dr Meyer Verlag, who claims they’re three times the size of the Great Pyramid of Giza. People are suggesting that it could be the reason there are so many mysterious disappearances. Dr Meyer is said to be an oceanographer, who discovered it using sonar, but no one has been able to find any information on who she actually is. Searching her name on google brings up no real information about her, which has led people to question her very existence. The pyramids supposedly have two holes at the top, water rushing through these causes surging waves and mist, which may be why so many vessels crash here. So far no evidence has come out to back up these claims, the existence of Dr Meyer, and the pyramid remain a mystery.
Strange Anomaly Found In Great Pyramid Of Giza
Using amazing new technology experts have been able to use cosmic rays to see inside the ancient Egyptian pyramids without actually entering. Using this technique they managed to discover a secret passageway inside the Great Pyramid of Giza. They also found strange heats spots dotted around the pyramid. Some parts of the pyramid are much hotter than other parts, and they believe that these are secret passages hidden inside the pyramid. Using the same techniques archaeologists hope to be able to explore other historical places without damaging anything, and may even be able to find Genghis Khan’s lost tomb, or the tomb of Alexander the Great.
Area 51 Pyramid
While searching through google earth people were shocked to find that there was a mysterious pyramid right next to area 51. There appears to be a large pyramid like structure built inside area 51, but why? Some claim pyramids are way to absorb energy from the heavens, others claim that pyramids have healing properties.
Mysterious Pyramids Underground In Egypt?
Mysterious Pyramids have shown up on satellite images, but appear to be buried underground. It’s been hypothesised that the pyramids were part of an ancient civilisation buried by the great flood talked of in myths throughout the world. It’s possible that the pyramids are actually another sort of structure. The largest one appears to have the ruins of a building at it’s peak. The Dailymail, and BBC news also reported that satellite images had found 17 pyramids, 1,000 tombs, and 3,000 ancient settlements. The results were found by Dr Sarah Parcak, at the University of Alabama.
Secret Pyramid Hidden Beneath Giza
A hidden Egyptian city has been found underneath the Great Pyramid of Giza. A large scale labyrinth is hidden underground in Egypt. It’s been known about for a long time, yet hardly anyone knows anything about it. The historian Herodotus even wrote about the Labyrinth, saying it’s even more amazing than the pyramids of Egypt. The labyrinth could contain up to 1500 rooms, 1500 chambers, and many ancient texts. Herodotus even wrote that the labyrinth contained a secret underground pyramid, which reaches 240 feet in height. “Near the corner where the labyrinth ends, there is a pyramid, two hundred and forty feet in height, with great carved figures of animals on it and an underground passage by which it can be entered. I was told very credibly that underground chambers and passages connected this pyramid with the pyramids at Memphis.” Herodotus.
