Ed Leedskalnin secretly built Coral Castle as he excavated, carved, and moved 1,100 tons of coral rock. Since 1923 scientists, engineers, and scholars continue to be mystified and investigate the Coral Castle. If you had visited Coral Castle in the 1940s you would have been greeted enthusiastically by a man weighing a mere 100 pounds and standing just over five feet tall. He would have asked you for 10 cents admission and introduced you to his fantasy world.
Since it is documented that no one ever witnessed Ed’s labor in building his beloved Coral Castle, some have said he had supernatural powers. Ed would only say that he knew the secrets used to build the ancient pyramids and if he could learn them, you could too.
On average, the weight of a single block used in the Coral Castle is greater than those used to build the Great Pyramids in Egypt. The methods Ed used to create this architectural feat remain unanswered to this day. Can you find the connection to Coral Castle and Prime Numbers; how many hexagrams can you find at Coral Castle. Be apart of the international and national discussion and see Ed’s hand-carved nine-ton gate, a Polaris telescope, and experience how Ed’s Sundial keeps track of time and season to the minute and other amazing discoveries!
What clues do you think Ed left behind? Today scientists, engineers, and mathematicians from around the world continue to attempt to reveal how Ed created this unique modern megalith which has been compared to the great Pyramids of Giza, Stonehenge, Mexico’s Chichen Itza, and is considered one of the wonders of the world. The big question still confounds us all. How did he do it?
These types of questions always peak the minds of young and old alike. Experience the Coral Castle with our continuous live tours. Our guides will share the “Love Story,” the history, the science, and you will experience how some of Ed’s items work — even after 92 years!
Seen on the History Channel, Travel Channel, Discovery Channel, Ancient Aliens, Univision, BBC, and much more! Billy Idol wrote the famous song about Ed’s sweet 16, which he continues to sing in concert today called: “Sweet Sixteen.” There is a fantastic short movie about the greatest mysteries of Coral Castle and it’s creator and builder — Edward Leedskalnin.
