These Mysterious Ancient Works Discovered in Kazakhstan Are Massive And Amazing

Dmitriy Dey was simply a viewer of Discovery Channel's "Pyramids, Mummies and Tombs" when an idea popped up: maybe there are pyramids lying around in Kazakhstan too?

To verify this, Dmitriy Dey went to the handy dandy Google Earth app. However, there were no pyramids or mummies whatsoever.

But this wasn't such a bother since something else that's similarly interesting appeared: massive, ancient earthworks.

They Can Only Be Seen From Space

They Can Only Be Seen From Space

These weird structures are so massive that they can only be wholly seen from space. For example, this X square pattern has sides which are 900 feet long each.

Found in the Northern Kazakhstan Steppe

It may seem something straight out of conspiracies and aliens, but these images rediscovered by Dmitriy back in 2007 are most likely ancient, man made structures.

Are These Nazi Symbols?

Are These Nazi Symbols?

While this earthwork might seem like it was made for Nazis, the swastika symbol has actually been used even before Nazis existed. There hasn't been any extensive research done to determine just how old these are, but it's believed that nomadic hunters once lived in these parts of Kazakhstan.

Stonehenge

Another magnificent, ancient wonder is the Stonehenge which is believed to be a burial site. Built from 3,000 BC to 1,600 BC, archaeologists are determined that this area is also a place to receive mystical healing, as the stones are rightfully placed to indicate the sunset and the sunrise during the winter and the summer seasons, respectively.

The 13 Towers of Chankillo

The 13 Towers of Chankillo

No, that's not a back of an incredibly huge crocodile. Built in Peru during 300 BC, these 13 towers are actually some of the earliest known solar observatories in the Americas. The leftmost tower meets the sun during winter, and by summer the sun would hit the right portion of the towers. Thus, this acts like a big calendar.

The Infamous Hummingbird

The Infamous Hummingbird

This was already a famous location even before Google Earth became popular. Hundreds of similar earthworks were discovered by people flying over Peru. Initially, they were thought to be simply straight lines, but a historian who flew over them realize that they were much more complex. This one, for example, is shaped like a hummingbird.

The Hands of Nazca

The Hands of Nazca

Unlike Stonehenge and the 13 Towers of Chankillo, Peru's Nazca lines are actually less about healing, burial, and ancient calendars as much as they are grandiose works of art believed to serve as welcome images for the gods above.

The Long Desert Rock Walls

The Long Desert Rock Walls

The Desert Kites spans Jordan, Syria, Saudi Arabia and Israel and is composed of rock walls that were constructed about 3,000 to 5,000 years ago. These walls were built to trap animals and easily hunt them down.

The Memorable Maree Man

The Memorable Maree Man

Discovered in 1998 by someone who flew over the large structure, the Maree Man is a modern geoglyph or earthwork that spans at least 2.6 miles. The Maree Man is seen hunting something with a slingshot and was created just about two decades ago, though no one knows for sure who made it.
