A bizarre ‘structure’ surfaced on the cold continent of Antarctica in January 2012, which is said to be the site of a secret A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ metropolis.
The enigmatic structure is 400 feet broad and looks to be man-made, adding to a growing body of evidence that suggests there may be a buried metropolis frozen under the surface. Due to its cold temperatures, Antarctica is essentially uninhabited. The continent is thought to have reached its current ice level 6,000 years ago, and it has remained totally covered in ice throughout the centuries.
The odd mound was first thought to be sastrugi, which are sharp grooves produced on snow by high winds. However, this phenomena is usually characterized by short, sharp edges, and the mysterious structure seems to be oval in shape.
Researchers were baffled by the discovery, which some people claim could be evidence of hidden c̳i̳v̳i̳l̳i̳z̳a̳t̳i̳o̳n̳. The “traces of a human settlement underneath the ice” were revealed in photographs released by NASA, which were taken with GOI 1 satellite.
The allegations were made only a few months after a massive pyramid-like structure was discovered on the icy continent. Though, for years, legends of a secret metropolis beneath the ice have circulated.
Many researchers believe the massive and unexplained “anomaly” runs for 151 miles and might be buried 848 meters beneath the ground. According to conspiracy theorists and even some scientists, the icy continent is home to the famous Lost City of Atlantis.

According to the hypothesis, shifts in the Earth’s crust caused significant sections of Antarctica to be ice-free 12,000 years ago, allowing people to live there. A culture might have existed before the previous Ice Age, which froze the continent, according to legend. And it’s possible that this was Atlantis, a mythological metropolis established by half-gods and half-humans that was originally referenced by Greek philosopher Plato in 360BC.
Because of their remarkable likeness in shape and look, several ideas relate Antarctica’s unique construction to some extraordinary A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ ruins unearthed in Southern Africa. They are in the Emakhazeni local municipality, which is part of the Nkangala district municipality in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa.

Dolerite is used to build the walls of this A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ Southern African metropolis. The construction has been dated at 200,000 years old by analyzing the rate of Dolerite erosion. Both the Antarctic building and the South African remnants are very identical, as though the same construction techniques were used or the builders were the same.
