Larger than Baalbek: Huge Megaliths found in Russia defy explanation

Researchers state that from the scale depicted by the human figures, these megaliths are much larger (as much as 2 to 3 times larger) than the largest known megaliths in the world. Preliminary studies suggest that there are blocks of stone at Gornaya Shoria which weigh around three to four thousand tons.

The Megaliths of Baalbek are considered by mainstream scholars as some of the most impressive on planet Earth. However, there are numerous other sites that just as Baalbek, are beyond fascinating and completely defy our understanding of ancient civilizations and their capabilities in the distant past.

Update: In 2014, enormous megaliths were found near the two-thousand-year-old temple to Jupiter in Baalbek, Lebanon. One of these megaliths weighs 1650 tons and is 64 feet long. It is now considered the largest megalithic block carved by human hands in the world. On the other hand, the megaliths at Gornaya Shoria could possibly have been created by natural geological processes, according to some Russian scientists.


Baalbek is impressive, it is the ultimate evidence of sophisticated ancient cultures that mastered engineering and architecture, yet it remains a profound mystery in the eyes or mainstream scholars. Mainstream archaeology has different points of view when it comes to the exact age of the site. According to conventional archaeologists, it was a Phoenician sanctuary dedicated to the god Baal, it was a Greek City called Heliopolis (City of the Sun) and since the time of Emperor Augustus, it was a Roman colony. The truth is, the exact age remains a mystery, but some researchers consider this ancient megalithic site as being at least 12.000 years old but could possibly be over 20,000 years old.

The great platform upon which the temple of Baalbek was built is majestic, but today only a few columns remain standing. It is a construction that modern archaeologists and engineers cannot explain given the history and age that have been “officially” accepted. Some believe that history has got it all wrong when it comes to Baalbek.


Gornaya Shoria

However, the megaliths located in Russia are even more impressive than Baalbek and have caused confusion among researchers ever since their discovery.

We are talking about the megalithic site of Gornaya Shoria, located deep in the Siberian Mountains, where  during one of the expeditions to the site, compasses of the geologists behaved very strangely and for some unknown reason their arrows were deviating from the megaliths. (source)

This impressive megalithic site is one of the largest sites ever discovered in Russia. Located on Mount Shoria in southern Siberia, the site contains some of the largest blocks of stone with flat surfaces, right angles, and sharp corners resembling cyclopean masonry ever discovered. The giant megaliths were found and photographed for the first time by Georgy Sidorov who explored the area for the first time in 2013. Ever since its discovery, this megalithic site has caused great debate among researchers and archaeologists who cannot agree whether or not the mysterious stones with flat surfaces, right angles, and sharp corners are man-made structures or not.

Preliminary studies suggest that there are blocks of tone which weigh around three to four thousand tons. What makes this site, even more, interesting is the fact that this extremely heavy blocks of stone have been stacked up to forty meters in height.

Without a doubt, the origin, purpose, and construction methods used into construction process of this ancient site remain a mystery, but their beauty, precision, and importance will remain a subject of debate in the years to come.

Very interesting comments regarding the megalithic site were made by archaeologist John Jensen:

The super megaliths were found and photographed for the first time by Georgy Sidorov on a recent expedition to the Southern Siberian mountains.

There are no measurements given, but from the scale depicted by the human figures, these megaliths are much larger (as much as 2 to 3 times larger) than the largest known megaliths in the world. (Example: The Pregnant Woman Stone of Baalbek, Lebanon weighs in at approximately 1,260 tons). Some of these megaliths could easily weigh upwards of 3,000 to 4,000 tons.

There is little commentary on Valery’s site, so the images are displayed here without many comments, other than my own limited observations.”

So what are the enigmatic stones found at Gornaya Shoria? Are these structures the result of ancient man’s ingenious construction methods? Or are they the result of mother nature’s incredible constructions.

Cyclopean masonry or not, the enigmatic megalithic blocks of stone of Gornaya Shoria have challenged mainstream archaeologists and researchers once again, forcing them into a debate that seeks to uncover the truth behind numerous similar ancient sites found around the globe.

  1. These Siberian stones do not have such precision edges that we see in Baalbek, so I feel this site is rather suspect as man-made – we do know that stone can split in a regular, straight-line fashion, so it is possible that all the very huge stone world-wide are actually natural originally, possibly moved to a new location, but mostly just used where they lie ? On the other hand, just dismissing them without considering other possibilities is wrong too. I think the under-sea stones off Japan look strange – don’t really look like a human-made structure although they have remarkably sharp edges, neither does this Siberian pile of rock, but some definitely do – Baalbek yes ! At the same time why would naturally split rocks move to create a ‘slot’ between them – that seems a human like thing to do – but that COULD be from earthquake activity I guess ? How to tell what is fact is the problem !

        1. When did you travel there for your scientific investigation? Or are you just another sofa scientist, chiming in on topics armed with no more than personal opinion?

  2. Some pictures show stone that has evidently been cut. Having traveled to many sites around South America (including Machu Picchu), I have seen massive stones which have been moved or carved that defy modern explanation. If you haven’t traveled these sites, I suggest you do. Fascinating.
