The greatest unsolved mysteries in the world!
Despite the efforts of our most expert historians, determined treasure hunters, and great cryptographers, there are many mysteries and riddles in world history that have remained unsolved. If you’re interested in learning more about them, check out our list of the world’s greatest unsolved mysteries.
Area 51, United States of America
This remote US Air Force base in Nevada hides a trove of enigmatic secrets! According to conspiracy theorists and UFO legend, the site is used to store an alien vehicle that crashed on Earth, and underground military facilities are used to research alien technology. What is there, and what is happening there, is still a mystery.
Mechanism of Antikythera in Greece
This ancient computer-like device, discovered in the wreckage of a 2000-year-old ship off the coast of the Greek island of Antikythera, is thought to have been created by Greek scientists sometime between 150 BC and 100 B. In 1959, Princeton University science historian Derek J. de Solla Price discovered that the device could be used to predict eclipses and even astronomical positions. The strange thing is that the technology to create such an object was not seen again until the 14th century, for reasons that are still unknown.
Bermuda Triangle is a geographical location in the United States
It’s a mysterious area where planes and ships have mysteriously vanished over the last 500 years. It’s called the Bermuda (or Devil’s) Triangle for a reason. The British Overseas Territory of Bermuda, Florida, Miami, United States, and the American territory of Puerto Rico all border this area. Scientists and experts have proposed numerous theories, ranging from unidentified flying objects (UFOs) to sea monsters, but no one has been able to solve the puzzle.

Loch Ness Monster in Scotland
Do you believe there is a monster like Loss Ness? According to legend, it’s a mythical aquatic creature found in Scotland, though some experts believe it’s a large animal that represents a dinosaur line. The first photographic evidence of the monster was thought to have been discovered in 1934, but it was later discovered in 1994 to be a fake. There were reports in 2008 that the creature may have gone extinct as a result of global warming, but scientists are now in talks to use environmental DNA to prove the creature’s existence.
Inscription at Shugborough, England
From afar, this 18th-century Shepherd’s Monument in Staffordshire, England, appears to be a normal monument, but closer inspection reveals a strange sequence of letters: DOUOSVAVVM — a code that has remained unsolved for all these years. Some experts speculated that the code could be a clue left behind by the Knights Templar regarding the location of the Holy Grail, while others attempted but failed to crack the code.
Turin Shroud (Italy)
It’s a piece of linen cloth with a man’s image on it that’s thought to be the burial shroud of Jesus of Nazareth. It was kept in the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin, Italy, according to records. It’s worth noting that many scientists have studied the cloth over the years and conducted a variety of tests, including DNA studies. According to a July 2018 study, the shroud is a forgery because the bloodstain patterns appear to be unrealistic. Despite this, the shroud continues to be a religious icon shrouded in mystery.
According to historical records, the Neolithic builders put in approximately 30 million hours to construct this prehistoric monument. These structures are mostly made of sarsen and bluestone, and they have massive upright stones. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage site in southern England, and some scientists believe glaciers, not humans, are to blame for the majority of the heavy lifting of stones during one of the Ice Ages. The purpose of this structure, however, is still unknown.
Mohenjo Daro, Pakistan
It was built around 2500 BC and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was one of the earliest cities in the world and one of the largest settlements of the ancient Indus Valley civilisation. Until it mysteriously collapsed, this site thrived along the fertile plains of the Indus River. This city was unknown until 1911, when archaeologists discovered it for the first time. It’s worth noting that the fate of the civilisation and its inhabitants is still unknown, despite the fact that many theories have been proposed by experts.
