And mountain school, which was situated there, is the most mystical and mysterious in Ceylon.

The fate has a strange way of missing people (and in the year 400 BC there were about 5 thousand) we only know that they left the island and settled on the other side of the Himalayas, possibly in the area of Shambhala. However, still traces of their settlements or the descendants of these people are not found.

PRODIGAL PLACE – an old name for abnormal where there is the most incredible incident in the first place — complete loss of spatial orientation.
