Kamyana Mohyla

Kamyana Mohyla

Kamyana Mohyla is yet another little known but amazing sightseeing place in Ukraine. Kamyana Mohyla means the Rock Mound. The site is about 20 minutes drive by car from Melitopol, in the village Myrne. Kamyana Mohyla is one of Ukraine's most interesting historical sites and is certainly one of the world's great archaeological treasures.

As the name suggests, you will find large rocks here. So far so good but one could argue that Stonehenge or other places across Europe offer just as impressive sights. What makes Kamyana Mohyla special is that it is so old and it is not just stones, but carved out statues standing here. The Kamyana Mohyla carvings are likely the oldest of their kind in the world. Petroglyphs found on the rocks indicate they could be over 9,000 years old.

The site has a special atmosphere with its stone idols shaped as women that are referred to as Kamyana baba (stone grandmother). It is a spiritual center of planetary significance for many people of all walks of life, including archeologists and yogis. Prehistoric men prayed to their gods and carried out rituals at this place and carved out pictures of mammoths, horses and other into the rocks.

Most of the several hundred carvings that have been found here since early 19th century when the exploration of the site began remain, however, hidden by sand. Kamyana Mohyla was in fact once at the bottom of the Sarmatian Sea, which covered most of southern Ukraine some 12 million years ago. That is where the sand surrounding the rocks comes from.
