The Gornaya Shoria megaliths are a stone formation at Gornaya Shoria in southern Siberia, Russia, lying to the east of the Altai Mountains. They have been claimed to be gigantic prehistoric stones, or megaliths, but no reliable confirmation of this has been made to date. However, granite can exhibit cubic fractures. There are similar formations around the world, as in Girraween National Park in Australia and in the Rudolfstein in the Fichtel Mountains of Germany.
The largest pieces or blocks of stone have estimated weights between three and four thousand tons, and if they are megaliths they are the largest cut stones in the world dating from prehistory. First reported and photographed in 2013, they have been compared with the smaller megaliths at Baalbek, now in the Lebanon.
The blocks appear to be stacked, almost in the manner of cyclopean masonry and they’re twice the size of the megaliths of Baalbek, which are a bonafide mystery, in and of themselves.
Russia is no stranger to ancient megalithic sites, like Arkaim or Russia’s Stonehenge, and the Manpupuner formation, just to name two, but the site at Shoria is unique in that, if it’s man-made, the blocks used are undoubtedly the largest ever worked by human hands.
Because it is such a new discovery in a remote place, much more needs to be studied to understand what this formation truly represents but evidence continues to mount that very sophisticated technology was used in the ancient world.
