On the way to the Roman Ruins in #Baalbek , we passed a really large stone - the Stone of the Pregnant Woman. Legend says that a pregnant woman tricked the people of Baalbek in believing that she can move the stone if they fed her until she gave birth. Others say that if women touched the stone, it made them more fertile. In the modern world, we can only guess that it was on the way to the Temple of Jupiter (you will see that later on) and that it never made it. Looks tiny from afar but check out the photo of my brother and compare it there. This is only the entrée though. Wait till you see the Roman Ruins post. Also - the last photo is Laura getting cleaned because she can not control her movements through dusty paths 😂 #HajjarAlHabla #StoneOfThePregnantWoman
This is one piece of stone was quarried and moved a few thousand years ago by humans with primitive technology that would be difficult to do today even with current technology.
Yep, I got this! Maybe just need a little help with the backside... #baalbek #lebanon #megaliths #megalithic #site #largest #stone #discover #stoneofthepregnantwoman #whodidit #truth #igotthis
This doesn't look that hard to finish. Lazy Romans or giants or some other extinct human species... or aliens. Let me just take a look here... #baalbek #lebanon #megaliths #megalithic #site #largest #stone #discover #stoneofthepregnantwoman #whodidit #truth
The mighty 1000 ton ‘Stone of the Pregnant Woman’ at the quarry in Baalbek today with our group, just before a massive lightning storm came in! An even larger one weighing 1650 tons sits below right next to it. #megalithomania #baalbek #megalith #stoneofthepregnantwoman
Stone of the pregnant woman, Baalbek Temple, Lebanon. Considered the largest hewn stone in the world, still sits where it was cut almost 2,000 years ago. (Some say 12,000 years ago) It weighs an estimated 1,000 tons. Very few of our biggest and best cranes in modern times could lift this stone block, so how was it moved to its present position? And seemingly abandoned. #Stoneofthepregnantwoman #ProjectKnowledge
We finally had a chance to go to the Beqaa Valley and visit the ancient city of Baalbek and the Umayyad Ruins of Aanjar! Here are a few pictures from this day trip and downtown Beirut. #beqaavalley #templeofbacchus #baalbek #umayyadruins #stoneofthepregnantwoman #beirut #gemmayzeh #centralstationbeirut #streetart
Abandoned megalithic stone quarry, Baalbek. This stone is estimated to weigh 1650 tons is one of the largest in the world and nobody can accurately date it. #heavy #stone #stoneofthepregnantwoman
From Stonehenge to Easter Island to Macchu Picchu, large stone block were dragged to create massive structures. The largest hewn stone in the world is found here in Baalbek weighing around 1,200 tons (about the weight of 3 Boeing 747s). It is known as the Stone of the Pregnant Woman. The stone did not make it to the Temple of Jupiter and was left jutting out of the ground. Many questions remain as to why it was necessary to have these massive blocks when smaller ones would suffice. #stoneofthepregnantwoman #largesthewnstone #baalbek #beirut #lebanon #lovetotravel #summerholiday #travel #wanderlust #travelblogger #architecture #ancientruins #beatricetravels
Stone of the Pregnant Woman  or Stone of the South is a Roman monolith in Baalbek (ancient Heliopolis), Lebanon. Together with another ancient stone block nearby, it is among the largest monoliths ever quarried. The two building blocks were intended for the nearby Roman temple complex, possibly as an addition to the so-called trilithon, and are characterised by a monolithic gigantism that was unparallelled in antiquity. #stoneofthepregnantwoman #baalbek #monolith #lebanon #heliopolis #ancient #roman #romantemple #trilithon #architecture #archaeology #megastructure #wonder #cairo #cambridge #london #lebanon_pictures #lebanese #lebanon_hdr #newyork #paris #newdelhi #jericoacoara
Tinha uma pedra (gigantesca) no meio do caminho do meu novo destino. E olha que ela já está aqui há algum muuuuitos anos atrás... . #CariocaTravelando #Lebanon #Baalbek #StoneOfThePregnantWoman #Libano

Taking a walk on one of the largest single pieces of cut stone in the world. The "Stone of the Pregnant Woman" (aka Hajar el Gouble) is located a couple miles from the ancient and very mysterious site of Baalbek, Lebanon. This monolith weighs 920 tons. Now archaeologists believe this block was to be used for the nearby Roman temple complex. However, many disagree with this theory and argue that massive stones such as these pre-date the Roman empire. The engineering used to lift and position these types of stones still baffles modern day scientists. Our largest and most powerful cranes in the world cannot lift nor move a stone like this. Did our ancestors have access to ancient technology that we are only starting to rediscover? The answer may be yes. Photo: Mark Ramsey. #ancientdestinations #amazingviews
Explain this @Regrann from @lepetersworld - Our #History is not what we have been told. They give us fake narratives of primitive civilizations, while our ancestors were actually more advanced than we today. #StoneOfThePregnantWoman #AncientTechnology 😉 Check out my Friends... 📢 @switzerlandawakening @conscious_god @vivid_wolf @_libertas_ For our Plane (t) 🌎 ✊🏽 #lebanon #temple #ancestors #ancient #civilization #archeology #forbiddenarcheology #science #physics #impossible #conspiracy #flatearth #chemtrails #government #nature #thinkaboutit #consciousness #meditation #nwo #newworldorder #sheeple #wakeup #anonymous #picoftheday #fakenews #instagram

Abdul, the proud and kind-hearted proprietor of an archeological site near the famous #baalbek ruins. An ex-soldier and native of the area, he started picking up the ever-accumulating trash that surrounded the 45m-long, 1000ton monolith that was destined for the nearby Roman temple but was never completed. Today, he runs a gift shop here and welcomes visitors to the free site with coffee and a smile.

Hajjar-al-Hibla Maior pedra esculpida do mundo 21m de comprimento 4,20m X 4,5m de largura e 1104 toneladas. Aqui é possível caminharmos ao redor dela e vivenciarmos sua magnitude. Esta pedra estava sendo esculpida para ser transportada a área das Ruínas de Baalbeck, mas seguramente não ficou pronta a tempo. Se chama #StoneofthePregnantWoman #Baalbeck #Lebanon #Libano #baalbak #HajaralHibla
This is the famous Stone of the pregnant woman (Baalbek, Lebanon). It's the biggest building block of the world and is 21,36 metres long, 4,33 metres high and 4,6 metres wide. You can also visualize it's dimensions when you think about how tiny the man sitting on the stone on that picture looks! No scientist can explain how our ancestors could transport such an enormous stone with ropes and "trunk-reels" only. This is all a big mystery to archeologists but to me it seems pretty clear: our ancestors had help by ancient aliens!
