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. Not even our biggest and best cranes in modern times could lift this stone block, so how on earth was it moved to its present position?
