Good to know

Touted as one of the most famous and remarkable UNESCO World Heritage sites, Stonehenge remains an ethereal creation whose mystery remains vastly unknown. Modern calculations estimate that the three phases of construction of the monument took more than thirty million hours of labor, and the transportation of the masses of colossal rocks across mountains and rivers was an almost unbelievable feat for humans in prehistoric times.

However, in 2013, the archaeologists concluded that it has been a burial ground. The stone circle consisting of 56 pits has also been known to hold posts. Another theory suggests that it was used by our ancestors to tell time.

The largest stones, known as Sarsens, measure up to 30 feet and weigh around 25 tonnes on average. The smaller ones are called bluestones and weigh about 4 tons. Theories suggest that these stones have been quarried from as far as 140 miles.

These ruins attract more than one million visitors every year, but visitors are allowed to view them from a distance due to the erosion of these stones.
