Jarlshof is the best known prehistoric archaeological site in Shetland, Scotland. It lies in Sumburgh, Mainland, Shetland and has been described as "one of the most remarkable archaeological sites ever excavated in the British Isles". It contains remains dating from 2500 BC up to the 17th century AD.
The Bronze Age settlers left evidence of several small oval houses with thick stone walls and various artefacts including a decorated bone object. The Iron Age ruins include several different types of structures, including a broch and a defensive wall around the site. The Pictish period provides various works of art including a painted pebble and a symbol stone. The Viking Age ruins make up the largest such site visible anywhere in Britain and include a longhouse; excavations provided numerous tools and a detailed insight into life in Shetland at this time. The most visible structures on the site are the walls of the Scottish period fortified manor house, which inspired the name "Jarlshof" that first appears in an 1821 novel by Walter Scott.

The Mystery!

As far as history is concerned, 1000 Shiva lingas were installed by the ruler Sadashivaraya of the Vijayanagar Kingdom sometime between 1678 and 1718.

The place looks truly mysterious and gorgeous when you get to see so many lingas together playing hide and seek with the river waters.

A 5,000 year old Harappan stepwell found in Dholavira; Gujarat, India, in 2014.

Dholavira, one of the largest known cities of the Indus Valley civilization. Scientists from the Archaeological Survey of India and IIT-Gandhinagar say that the well is almost three times bigger than the Great Bath at Mohenjo Daro. They will use 3-D laser scanners, remote-sensing technology, and ground-penetrating radar to analyze Dholavira’s ancient water system.

“Various surveys have indicated other reservoirs and stepwells may be buried in Dholavira. We also suspect a huge lake and an ancient shoreline are buried in the archaeological site,” V.N. Prabhakar of IIT Gandhinagar

“अवशेष”

An architectural charm of the Chalukyan era , Durga temple is an unique temple built around 6th-7th century .

Unlike most of the temples built during this era ,

Durga temple has an unique “apsidal” design and houses carvings dedicated to Prabhu Vishnu , Shiva , Maa Durga , Yamuna and Ganga . Though it is called Durga Temple, it has nothing to do with goddess Durga . The name of the temple may have derived from the word ‘durga(दुर्ग)’ meaning fort .

Aihole (Karnataka)

was a primitive Chalukyan art centre and is called as Cradle of Indian architecture due to its importance as a practical ground used for experimenting Indian art and architecture which houses around 120 small and big temples .

Golden Uraeus of Senusret II

This uraeus was discovered by Flinders Petrie in 1920 during his excavations around the Pyramid of Senusret II at Lahun. The rearing cobra, known as a uraeus, was a symbol of royalty, worn at the forehead.

The golden uraeus is of solid gold, 6.7 cm (2.6 in), black eyes of granite, a snake head of deep ultramarine lapis lazuli, the flared cobra hood of dark carnelian inlays, and inlays of amazonite. For mounting on the king’s crown, two loops in the rear-supporting tail of the cobra provide the attachment points.

Middle Kingdom, 12th Dynasty, reign of Senusret II, ca. 1897-1878. Now in the Egyptian Museum, Cairo.

Tomb robbers foiled Senusret II's attempts to arrive in the afterlife unscathed.
The Great Pyramids of Giza already lay empty.

They had been plundered during Egypt’s First Intermediate Period, just 300 years after they were sealed for eternity.

Another 300 years later, and 64 kilometres to the south-west, a grand mud-brick pyramid was being raised above the desert.

This was the tomb of the Middle Kingdom pharaoh, Senusret II. He chose to build his pyramid at Lahun on the eastern edge of the fertile Faiyum region.

Having seen the desecration of the tombs of his great predecessors, King Senusret II knew he had to outsmart the thieves. Instead of placing the entrance on the north side of the monument, like most of the pyramids that had come before, the opening to Senusret’s was through a shaft hidden in the pavement on the south side.

In 1889 the young British archaeologist Flinders Petrie spent months trying to find the entrance. When he eventually made his way in he discovered that the ancient grave robbers had also succeeded in finding and plundering the king’s burial place. Of the once rich tomb furnishings, only a red-granite sarcophagus, and an alabaster offering table remained.

But then in 1920 he went back to make a thorough clearance of the debris in the rooms and passages. Within just half an hour of starting, this wonderful treasure was uncovered – a royal uraeus.

This was the rearing cobra worn by royalty at the forehead and is likely from the brow of a crown or headdress of Senusret II.

⭕ This statue is 40,000-year-old!⭕

This is the Lion Man of the Hohlenstein-Stadel, considered to be the oldest-known zoomorphic (animal-shaped) sculpture in the world.

The Lion Man has the head of a cave lion with a partly human body.

Sculpted with great originality, virtuosity and technical skill from mammoth ivory, this 40,000-year-old image is 31 centimetres tall.

Found in a cave in what is now southern Germany in 1939, the Lion Man is the oldest known evidence for religious beliefs and Stadel Cave suggests that believing and belonging have a deep history crucial to human societies and originating long before writing.

Martand Surya Mandir, Anantnag, Kashmir C. 1900-10

The Martand Sun Temple is a Hindu temple located near the city of Anantnag in Jammu and Kashmir, India. The Martand Sun Temple was built by Lalitaditya Muktapida, the third maharaja of Kashmir under the Karkota dynasty, in the 8th century AD.

The temple was destroyed by the Shah Miri dynasty in the 15th century, on the orders of the erstwhile ruler of Kashmir, Sikandar Shah Miri(Butshikan). The dynasty was established by Shah Mir in 1339 CE, there are two theories regarding Shah Mir's origin. Historian A.Q. Rafiqi states that some Persian chronicles of Kashmir describe Shah Mir as a descendant of the rulers of Swat. He thinks it more likely that he was a descendant of Turkish or Persian immigrants to Swat. Most modern historians accept the Swati origins of Shah Mir. Swati are Afghans came to Dir Malakand region in time of Ghaznavi.

A man of 40 years old, 6 ft 2 in (188 cm) tall was laid out on a bronze couch. He had been buried with a gold-plated torc on his neck, a bracelet on his right arm, and most notably, thin embossed gold plaques were on his now-disintigrated shoes. At the foot of the couch was a large cauldron decorated with three lions around the brim. The east side of the tomb contained a four-wheeled wagon holding a set of bronze dishes - enough to serve nine people.
