Ancient monuments have surpassed civilizations, so much so that we can't even understand how they were built back then with zero technology. And they were built for a reason- whether it was a tribute to a god or gods, a landing pad for aliens, a joke constructed for the sole purpose of making people laugh or burial sites for the famous, their rich histories have only gotten richer as more years pass. Some of this history includes these monuments being guides. And while it may sound funny to some, we can totally understand where this legend came from.
Only a few monuments have managed to achieve guide status in our books and they include the infamous Great Pyramid of Giza, an impressive structure built by the Egyptians, the Parthenon, a dedication to the Greek goddess Athena, Stonehenge, a mysterious collection of stones that no one can explain, and the Moai Heads on Easter Island.
But which one of them is your guide and what exactly does that mean for you and this famed place? We're just as curious as you to find out who will help you on this journey we call life. So, let's stop wasting time and get started!
