Eye of Wisdom


Another unique natural formation — the funnel-type holes — are found a couple of dozen metres away from the tail of the Buck’s Hill and not a hundred metres away from the Lousy Oak. It is possible that both holes formed as glaciers melted thousands of years ago.

The explanation offered by researchers of Latvian sacred sites and magic rites is not an official version, but certainly a more interesting one. They call these dips on both sides of the road the Devil’s Eyes.  

The sage Māris Zvaunis: “The circles look like perfect funnels as if drawn by compasses, the ground cannot itself form it. Signs suggest that about 4000 years ago, a meteorite fell here and split near the ground, carving out these funnels (there is another such funnel further in this forest). Their visual effect is much more impressive than their famous Estonian peers — the craters of Saaremaa, not to mention the energy that has penetrated the earth along with the space rocks.”

The energy of this crater is markedly positive — its water leads you to learning and wisdom. Even though the water is as dark as black tea, they say that it is potable. Due to the dry weather in the spring, summer or autumn, the water in the funnel may have dried out.
