So, about 15 or so years ago, I read my first Zechariah Sitchin book, "The 12th Planet," and proceeded to read the rest in his series. I since know
that much of his claims are crap, but it got me into looking around on Google Earth (about 10 years ago) to look for intriguing, undiscovered things
that may lie in view in the areas that were discussed in his book.
One such place is Dilmun. When I typed that in to GE, it took me to the island of Bahrain. I didn't see anything exciting as I was poking around, but
then I decided to look off the coastlines to see anything that looked man-made, but that I could not explain.
I came across these, which are off the coast of Jannusan, Barbar, or Jid al Haj:
What I'm pointing out are the odd arrow-looking things that are pointing relatively to the north. I posted this on a site a decade ago, but no one
commented on it and I forgot about/lost interest until I remembered them a few months ago.
Sadly, it appears that the penchant for creating man-made islands in that area of the world is encroaching on them, and already some of them are lost
to this construction, as they exist(ed) all along that section of coastline and not just in the encircled area of the second image. In fact, they also
exist farther out into the ocean, if they're still visible in Google Earth/Maps.
Do these look like some sort of ancient animal pens, or animal traps, or fishing traps, or anything that you can pinpoint? I've looked at them over
and over, and they don't appear to be any sort of drainage lines from on land (especially if they're covering over them with islands) or sewage pipes
or...well, anything that I can figure out.
Will one of you solve this mystery that I've been holding onto for about the past 10 years? I'm stumped...but they obviously appear designed and
created by human hands at some point in history.
Also, I have not found any other examples of this off the coastline of any other cities in this area...only in this particular one.
Coordinates are: 26.241558,50.492499 (copy and paste it into Google or Bing Maps)
Here is a detail of one of them as seen from Bing's imagery, this is from the area to the right of the rectangular island on the right side of the
Hopefully they interest you as much as me, as it seems that they may be covered up, soon. Any ideas or thoughts on this would be greatly
