Truly Bizarre Monuments Found Abroad
While Stonehenge itself is more majestic than bizarre, many people find it amazing that we still don’t really know what it was originally used for. Built during the Neolithic period in southern England, it was used as a burial ground, but no one has been able to definitively say what other kinds of ceremonies occurred here. Additionally, no one is sure how such a primitive society managed to erect these massive stones.
Christ of the Divine Mercy
This 50-foot statue of Jesus located in Cagayan de Oro, Philippines, comes complete with a tiny adoration chamber built into Jesus’ heart that can be reached via staircase. Worshippers are encouraged to use the stairs to access the heart chamber before descending to the healing chapel located at his feet. The monument, which was completed in 2008, is surrounded by beautiful gardens that visitors are welcome to enjoy before concluding their visit.
Mac the Moose
Where else could you find the world’s largest moose statue other than Moose Jaw, Canada? Moose Jaw was given this gigantic statue in 2004 by an artist from neighboring Saskatoon, and Mac currently sits overlooking the nearby Trans-Canada highway, so everyone passing through the city can enjoy him.
