Stonehenge

Stonehenge stone circle is possibly the remains of a temple and is famous for its trilithons,the large door-frame shaped stone arrangements, which are actually slotted together with mortice-and-tenon joints.these are arranged so that when the sun rises and set on the solstices it shines straight through the circle along the Avenue on to the Heel stone. Evidence that Stonehenge was some sort of observatory or Lunar calendar is still slight and the purpose of the design remains a mystery. The photo was taken at dusks
