A Mysterious Giant Rock Monument Lurks on the Bottom of the Sea of Galilee

It’s huge, ancient, on the bottom of the sea … and not a natural formation. In 2003, a team of Israeli archaeologists was 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 meticulous 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…

Putting all the data together researchers found that the structure is cone shaped, about 230 feet (70 meters) in diameter and nearly 32 feet (10 meters) tall. It weighs an estimated 60,000 tons. via LiveScience

The only thing they are sure of is that mysterious architectural pile of rocks was first built on land before being flooded.
Scuba divers investigated the structure revealing that it is made of basalt boulders up to 3.2 feet (1 meter) long. The rocks are piled on top of each forming what appears to be a cairn. In this image, an arrow points to a 4 inch (10 cm) fish beside the structure. via LiveScience
