The Floating Rock In Al-Hassa

A huge rock in a village of Al-Hassa region,
SAUDI ARABIA raises 11 cms from the
ground level once in a year during the
month of April and stays elevated for
about 30 minutes!!!

They say that 17 years ago, one Mujahid
was shot dead behind this rock as he
was hidden there. This encounter
happened in the month of April 1989.

You can see the fresh blood stains on
the rock. Most surprisingly, when the
rock raises from the ground, these stains
become darker, fresher and wet. Local
residents tried to wipe off the stains
several times, but after some time it
appears again on the rock automatically...

Is this true, or just some madcap idea for publicity?

Have a look....

Amazing Rock in Saudi Arabia

  1. Interesting how this photoshoped photo got more publicity than my face. i think im going to need to float 11cm from the ground to be as famous. this is not true Carly. the true story is that this rack is just sitting there and some random guy decides to take a picture of it. than someone photoshoped it a bit to make it look as if it was floating, and sends it to all his friends by email, it was a matter of time till everyone was talking about it and it spread all over the web. unfortunately, I say it with all shame, the locals didn't try to whipe off the blood they just believed a fake email and forwarded it to everyone they know and posted it on blogs, forums and web pages.
