The Earth is dotted with ancient ruins. Huge megalithic stone structures, planned cities, architecture aligned with astronomical events, roads and canals, and other artefacts, all bear testimony to the verses in the Qur’an asking us to take heed from these ruins. They must have been mighty civilisations, with advanced technologies, to have been able to build such structures. Though much remains to be discovered and dated, for reliable inferences to be made about these ruins, let alone tally which ruin matches with which ancient civilisation mentioned in the scriptures, yet it is wondrous to imagine how magnificent the ruins of today may have been at the peak of their glory!
