  • Thanks for posting about this upcoming event! It would be really interesting to be inside that inner chamber and see the beams of sunlight come in and light up the engraved stone. I wonder what it would feel like in those moments…

  • Wow stunning, the work that would have gone into that to make it happen amazing and 5000 years ago, and we call them primitive : ) thanks
