Megalith Datuk Tua – A Melaka Version of Stonehenge

A Stonehenge

A megalith is a large stone which has been used to construct a structure or monument, either alone or together with other stones. Megalithic means structures made of such large stones, utilizing an interlocking system without the use of mortar or cement.

Before going to Wiltshire England, I suggest you to drop by at Alor Gajah Melaka. Located at Cerana Putih Village Simpang Ampat, here you can witness an ancient megalith stone. Local Authority has gazette the places and named it Megalith Datuk Tua. This stone maybe dated back to pre-historic world. After seeing the stone then try visit Stonehenge in England, maybe you can find a connection… I dont know.

There are 100 of megalith stone scattered around this place. The size is not equivalent from stone to stone but not as huge as Stonehenge in England. The local community believe that the stone are ancient grave and old folks says its haunted. They believed that the stone are alive because it is growing all this years. Also shining like a lamp at night. Hmm sound spooky enough.
