The stone structure carved out of one single stone, is believed to have been built some 1500 years ago. It was found at a location 12,549 feet above sea level, but it is believed that this is not its original location. There are carvings and engravings on the structure, the reasons and meanings of which are still unknown. Some scientists say that these engravings have astronomical and astrological significance, but nobody is 100% sure as to what these signs mean.
