10. The Trolleborg Labyrinth
The island of Bla Jungfrun in Sweden has long been the subject of local folklore, with stories of dark curses and witchcraft. This places is spooky, and requires visitors to stick to the paths, and no one can visit the island after dark. There are a few unusual structures on the island that increases the mystery.
9. The Parisian Catacombs
The ground beneath Paris, France, was formed by an ocean that once covered the country 45 million years ago. The multiple layers of sediment left by the water became limestone, which itself is a useful building material. Since the Roman times, this limestone has been excavated to construct the city- leaving a vast network of tunnels and quarries beneath the ground creating a kind of maze!
8. The Lost Egyptian Labyrinth
You’ll have heard of the great pyramids and the Sphinx, but possibly the greatest building of the Egyptian empire that you’ve never heard of is the Egyptian Labyrinth. Unless you’ve seen my video on Mysterious Things in Egypt That No One Can Explain of course!!
7. Underground Roman Labyrinth
Rome has been around for a loooong time! Because it's such an ancient city, it’ll be no surprise that archaeologists are often making new discoveries all over the place. The current Romans are quite annoyed at this since they’ve been trying to get a metro for years. But whenever they start making advances, new things come up and all work has to stop until the archaeologists give it the green light...maybe 10 months later!
6. Chartres Labyrinth
The cathedral of Chartres was built during the height of the gothic movement in France and was designed to be higher, wider, and brighter than any others. Construction began in 1194 and was completed in 1221- with the labyrinth being built in the nave in the final 5 years. It's not the most elaborate of labyrinths you'll see within a church, but it's definitely one of the most famous in the world.
5. Danish Stone Age Labyrinth
In 2017, Danish archaeologists announced the discovery of what appeared to be a stone age labyrinth. It was uncovered in Stevns, on the east coast of Denmark, when the foundations were being laid for a new sports complex! Now it has baffled those trying to understand its purpose.
4. The City of Derinkuyu
The ancient underground city of Derinkuyu is an astonishing structure designed to confuse and deter invaders to protect those that lived there. It’s one of the largest labyrinth designs ever made, and still holds secrets waiting to be uncovered.
3. Bara Imambara
Bara Imambara is a religious building in the city of Lucknow in India. It was built by the ruler of the northern state of Awadh in 1784, and its name literally means the ‘big sacred hall’. As well as the large central hall, the building is made up of a mosque and a large labyrinth, which was built unintentionally as a way to support the larger building structure.
2. The Stone Labyrinths of Bolshoi Zayatsky
So, where would you think the highest concentration of ancient labyrinths on the planet is? The answer, perhaps surprisingly, is on a collection of small islands in Russia's White Sea. The Solovetsky Islands are home to 35 Neolithic labyrinths, dating back to around 3000 BC!!.
1. The Cretan Labyrinth
Of all the labyrinths in the world, undoubtedly the most famous is the one from Greek legend that’s located on the island of Crete… or is it? According to the myth, this labyrinth was built for King Minos by his master craftsman, Daedalus to contain the Minotaur monster, the child of his wife and a bull. But that’s a whole other story.
