There is a very mysterious island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean that is rumored to be haunted. Nan Madol was inhabited from the years 1200 to 1700, but researchers can’t figure out how the city on the island was built in the first place.
The island is located 1,600 miles from Australia and 2,500 miles from Los Angeles, California. So it’s not exactly close to land. But the structures on the land, such as tombs, baths, walls, and temples, were built using giant black rocks that weigh in at a total of 750,000 metric tons. That means that building the structures on these 200 acres was a bigger undertaking than even building the pyramids was. How did they do? And why?
An archeologist from Pohnpei admitted that no one has a clue.
“We don’t know how they brought the columns here and we don’t know how they lifted them up to build the walls. Most Pohnpeians are content to believe they used magic to fly them.”
Most locals in Pohnpei also believe that the island is haunted and refuse to go there.
