Temple of Jupiter Baalbek

The great platform upon which the temple 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.

Among the most intriguing of these megaliths is the Trilithon, and here is the cool part: three colossal blocks measuring 22 meters in length, 4.5 m high and 3.5 m wide. Their weight ranges between one and two thousand tons. These three huge megaliths tonnes on a row of six blocks of granite that measure each, 10 meters in length and 4 height and weighing over 300 tonnes. Some researchers argue that these megaliths are not “foundation stones” as they have always been declared as it appears as if it was essential that the largest of the stones were position on top, and not at the bottom making the whole edifice become an inverted structure.
