A prehistoric monument (also a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Stonehenge is an enigmatic yet archaeologically an iconic site that is believed to be constructed somewhere between 3000-2000 BC. Located 90 miles away from London in the Salisbury plains, these mysteriously laid stones attract tourists from around the world not just during Summer Solstice festival, but throughout the year.
There are never ending debates on why they brought these heavy weight stones, how did they transported them, was this built as a burial ground or as a pagan temple? Whatsoever it is, Stonehenge is definitely a beautiful place to observe a sunrise or sunset.
