Discovered in the Golan a year after its capture in 1967, Gilgal Refaim is a mysterious display of concentric stone circles that has long baffled archaeologists

Dated to be between 5,000 and 6,000 years old, Gilgal Refaim is reminiscent of England's famous ancient megalithic structure, Stonehenge. The site consists of around 42,000 tons of basalt rocks forming four circles, and archaeologists believe the walls of the structure once towered nine meters high, making it an especially impressive site when viewed from the air.
