4 Sigiriya, Sri Lanka

This slab was once a plug for a volcano that had eroded and disappeared.
The complex was a huge palace and western wall of the granite stone was a covered in huge murals, 460 feet long and 130 feet high; probably the biggest in the world. Though it was hard to attack, Kashyapa’s brother Moggallana came back with an army and defeated him. He took the capital back to Anuradhapura and transformed Sigiriya into a Buddhist Monastery which lasted till 14th century. Sigiriya became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983.
5 Stone Spheres
Costa Rica has become a mystery spot since 1930s. People have been finding things like stone spheres all over the country. Farmers started clearing the jungle for banana plantations and started finding stone spheres only a few inches to over 6.6 feet in diameter, and weighing in as much as 15 tons. Apart from stone spheres, people also found pottery from 300-1550 AD.
