The Unexplained Plane Of Jars
Often referred to as a south-east Asian version of Stonehenge, the Plain of Jars is one of the most enigmatic sights on Earth.
Ever since its discovery in the 1930s, this place has fascinated archaeologists and scientists.
The Plain of Jars is an archaeological landscape in Laos.
Scattered in the landscape of the Xieng Khouang plateau (China), at about 1,000 meters above sea level, are thousands of megalithic jars each about 3 meters tall and weighing several tons.
Often made of sandstone, but also of harder granite and limestone.
More than 90 sites like this are known within this province.
The stone jars are plain with the exception of a single jar. This jar has a human bas-relief carved on the exterior. The paintings, which depict large full-frontal humans with arms raised and knees bent, are dated to 500 BC - 200 AD.
Excavation by Lao and Japanese archaeologists has supported the conclusion that these were funeral megaliths, with the discovery of human remains, burial goods and ceramics found in association with the stone jars.
But local legends support other versions.
