Wonderful look at some of the world's most intriguing places from Stonehenge, to the Mayan temple-city of Palenque, the statues of Easter Island, Petra's rock-carved necropolis in the Jordanian desert, Angkor's city of temples and more. It explores their sacred and symbolic significance through facts, myths and legends that shroud these ancient places and the ruins that have captivated people throughout time.
