Ever Enigmatic – Nan Madol

The structure seems to have been transplanted from another world. Wide stretches of the foundation walls are still visible. Over 400,000 basalt pillars were piled over top of each other at 80 separate structures. Many of them were over 30 feet high. Individual beams over 40 feet wide, and weighing over 10 tones were used to create the structure. Who built this structure here and why? How many laborers were used to create this? And where did they all live. Logically, they couldn’t have been accommodated in this little island. How did the creators of Nan Madol transport these basalt beams? Too many questions, but no convincing answers.
