Yonaguni - The Lost Temple

I absolutely love ancient ruins and lost cities and artifacts. It always makes me wonder what was happening here on Earth during the dawn of time & civilization. Well apparently about 8,000 - 10,000 years ago people were constructing architectural feats of wonder.


In the case of Yonaguni...

"...the real attraction of these islands is the submerged ruins that you find in the southern coast of Yonaguni. A superb 100×50x25 meters man-made artifact made of solid rock slabs stands erect at right angles. Its age is estimated to be around 8000 years old, which is remarkably early for the kind of technology that has been used for carving it. Different theories exist about the possible identities of this structure..."
