On the Towada-ko side of Jesus' tomb is another mystery - also discovered by the same people who discovered the mystery of Jesus' tomb - the mystery of the ancient pyramids. These pyramids predate the Egyptians & ones found in Mexico.... (most likely because they are rocks that are tens of thousands of years old.... ) According to the mystery though they are man made.
Again this site gives good information about the historical oddities. http://www.zetetique.ldh.org/herai_en.html
I am not a fan of deliberately concocted history, but it's a beautiful area - and on that merit alone worth a visit.
