What in the world IS this?? I mean, really, just look at that thing, perched 2,580 meters (8460 ft.) off the ground. Wackypedia has little to say about it, except that it was supposedly hewn in the 6th Century. No mention is made of HOW this was done, though. How did the workers have enough space to swing a hammer without falling off the rocks??
Gotta be really devoted to want to climb all that way just for mass.
I feel that this is one of those things we are not being told the truth about, simply because nobody has a damn clue what it really is. It just makes no sense, and so historians just give it a brief description and hope we'll all buy it. Locals made up a history of their own about it, because they don't know, either. I can't help but think that the holes in the upper part of this rock, where a chapel now stands, are the last remnants of some rock-cut structure that was once much more extensive. Where it is now, is where the ground used to be. In other words, those pillars are what was left after something blasted away most of the rock and earth for thousands of square miles, leaving only a few pillars of rock remaining with whatever was attached to them. Another possibility (maybe): those pillars were extruded from the ground as gigantic crystalline formations, lifting whatever was perched on top of them high into the air. The pillar on which the chapel stands is part of a long ridge of similar tall, jagged rocks that don't seem to resemble any of the mountains around them, even though they are made of the same type of rock. I could be wrong, as it's hard to make a judgment from Google satellite maps.
Anyone else have any ideas about this odd chapel in the sky?
