From the Hill of Crosses in Lithuania, to the Petrifying Well in England, here are 16 Strangest Tourist Attrions From Around The World. \r\rSubscribe to Talltanic \r\r\r7 - Hill of Crosses\rThis creepy burial ground of massive proportions can be found in Lithuania, originally this place was a ceremonial site meant for Lithuanians to mourn the dearly departed lost at war. But an angered Soviet Union bulldozes the area twice to put a stop to the Lithuanians prayers. However, the locals refused to be hindered and rebuilt the cemetery bigger and better than before. Today, over 100,000 crosses stand on the hill, which remains a serene sacred space, meant to inspire hope, peace, love and sacrifice.\r \r6 - Leshan Giant Buddha\rThis 71 meters tall stone statue was built in the Tang Dynasty, between 713 and 803 AD, straight into the cliff face of Mount Emei, which lies at the confluence of several Chinese rivers, just a stroll from the city of Leshan. A sophisticated drainage system built into the massive statue allows water to drain through various pipes located throughout the deitys body, this carries away the rain waters so as to reduce weathering. The monk who began this construction believed this massive Buddha would help calm the turbulent waters which constantly sank ships attempting to cross the treacherous river passages.\r\r\r\r\r5 - Hand of the Desert\rIn the middle of the Atacama desert, somewhere in Northern Chile, among vast fields of endless sand, is what appears to be a giant hand creeping out of the dunes. No, its not a mirage. The 11-meter-tall hand protruding from the desert sands is the work of Chilean sculpture artist Mario Irarrázabal. Constructed in the early 1980s thanks to the financial support of a local booster organisation called Corporación Pro Antofagasta, the colossal work of art has become a rather confusing scene for motorists on the Pan-American Highway, whose cars often screech to a halt to gain a better view. \r\r4 - Human Tower Competition \rEvery year in Tarragona Spain, a Catalan tradition of building human towers which are meant to pierce the Heavens commences! These human tower castles can reach ten or even more stories high. Teams called colles compete to build the tallest and most complex tower comprised only of human bodies standing on top of one another. Thousands gather for this competition, with teams with reach into the hundreds. This tradition dates back over two hundred years. A small child often tops the tower. \r\r3 - Danakil Depression\rFound this strange destination in Ethiopia, its ually a geological depression which has resulted from the presence of three tectonic plates in the Horn of Africa, but, oh, its really, so much more. See those bizarre colored pools? Those seemingly average small bodies of water are really, acid pools. Even what appears to be land is, in reality, brittle crusts of salt and sulphur. The erosion of Africa and Asia moving apart caused rifts in the Earths core and a plethora of volcanic ivity, so despite being one of the lowest places on the planet, this depression is one of the hottest places in the world. \r\r2 - Thailands Hell Garden\rGet ready for a healthy dose of demons and torture! The sign which greets weary travellers reads, Welcome to Hell. This sculpture garden set in the fiery netherworld, depicts in gruesome detail, the punishments which lie in wait, for those who end up on the wrong side of the tracks in the afterlife. The tortures for sinners include impaling, transfiguration, disembowelling and many other heinous s of grave punishment. This glimpse into the Buddhist underworld can be found in a village not far from Bangkok, the curious museum of the damned has been nicknamed, the Thailand Hell Horror Park. \r\r1 - Englands Petrifying Well\rThe legend goes that this well once belonged to a powerful witch called Mother Shipton, among her powers, was the gift of prophecy.
