Columns of Rajajil

The Rajajil columns may belong to a temple built in the fourth millennium BC. The site contains about 50 groups of erect stone pillars and several broken columns lying on the ground. These groups are distributed in a large circle overlooking a wide sandy plain. Each group includes two to ten columns, one of which is approximately three meters high. Archaeologists believe that the site dates back to the fourth millennium BC. These columns are very similar to Stonehenge in Britain, which dates back to the third millennium BC. Current scholarly speculation suggests this site is a complex of different temples where human groups from outside the region visited to perform religious rituals.
