Strange Doorway For Monday Mystery...!

Some of the most mysterious places are ones that make you wonder...what were the builders thinking?

Of course, that's part of what makes the mysterious things so intriguing, isn't it? Someone, at some time, had a plan but what it was, we'll probably never know.

Aramu Muru


The Incan Doorway of Aramu Muru in Peru is a large square carved into a surface of rock. It’s 7 meters (23 ft) on each side, smoothed into a flat surface on an outcrop. In the center of the square at the bottom is an alcove a few feet wide and about as tall as a person. It looks like someone had started carving a building into the rock and just gave up.

The door has gained a cult following among believers in the paranormal, who say it’s a magical portal. Locals say it leads to the underworld and can be opened by magicians with special keys or enchantments. Some say it opens at midnight and there is a city on the other side. It’s even been suggested as a gateway to a distant part of the universe

Could South American natives really have accomplished magical interstellar travel thousands of years ago? It would be nice if that’s what they were attempting. The alternative is that someone was forced to give up their awesome construction project, and that’s just a little bit sad.

I reckon what it boils down to is that we have to decide if we really want to know the answers...or do we want things like this to remain a mystery to be pondered. Maybe not knowing is the best way to go.

Coffee in the kitchen this morning. There is still some rain hanging around and the 'skeeters are flying in formation, ya know?

Reminds me of Lord of the Rings.

Mamahen said...

Interesting ....but as you said...sometimes the not knowing is the intriguing again here this morning so inside is best :))

Chickenmom said...

Interesting - wonder why they never finished it. Cool here at 49, I'll bring warm biscuits and blueberry jam.

I think I prefer it to stay a mystery. Most certain coffee inside. If you have "skeeters" flying in formation I prefer to spend my time talking an d drinking coffee over swatting. Because of the cooler summer temps we have had I haven't seen many of those buggers this year.

It's a portal.

Dizzy-Dick said...

I think it is finished. It is a worship site and that small indentation was where they sat the idol.. or maybe not.

JO said...

I thought the same thing as Sixbears. But people of long ago thought of the other side as in the underworld. It's best left unknown.

We are looking at 80% change of more rain so coffee inside away from the skeeters sound good to me.

Hey Sixbears...
It does sort of resemble something that would be found in Middle Earth, doesn't it?

Thanks for coming over today!

Hey Mamahen...
I do believe that the unknown is more appealing to us than we realize.

So many mysteries, so little time!

Thanks for coming by today!

Hey Phyllis...
Lots of questions arise when we study things like this.

I love me some warm biscuits and jam!

Thanks for dropping by today!

Hey Linda M...
The 'skeeters are so bad, every place3 there is standing water (like the water bowl for the cats...inside!) has wigglers in it.

Inside is best!

Thanks for coming over this morning!

Hey Momlady...
That could very well be the case!

Thanks for the visit this morning!

Hey Dizzy...
Could be it is finished and we don't see it. After all, we have no idea what they were trying to accomplish.

Thanks for dropping by today!

Hey Jo...
I reckon that somethings are best left unknown.

Thanks, sweetie, for coming over today!
