This alley was created in San Luis Obispo in the 1960s. Since then it has turned out to be a real piece of art. The chewy masterpiece is made of 15-feet-high walls covered with used bubble gum from tourists from all over the world.

6. The Petrifying Well, England

If you put any object in this natural well situated in Mother Shipton’s Cave and leave it for some time, it will acquire a stony exterior. And there’s nothing mystical about this phenomenon! The water in the petrifying well has an unusual quantity of minerals that evaporate and cover the surface of each item you put inside.

5. Karni Mata Temple, India

This weird place is inhabited by more than 20,000 rats, who are considered to be holy. The rats are called "kabbas" and are worshipped by local people and tourists from all over the world.
If you want to enter the temple, you should take off your shoes. And if you have a chance to eat something nibbled on by one of the rats, you can consider yourself specially blessed!





4. Avanos Hair Museum, Turkey

This museum opened in 1979 when a local potter, Chez Galip, had to part with his female friend. He asked her for a souvenir in order to remember her, and she gave him a lock of her hair. He put her hair on the wall of his pottery shop. When visitors asked about it, he told them his story.
Other women were so astonished by his sadness that they began leaving locks of their hair for him as well. Then Galip decided to open the museum. Nowadays, the exhibit has over 16,000 strands of hair attached to the walls inside.


3. Carhenge, Nebraska

Carhenge is situated near the city of Alliance, and it represents the American version of Stonehenge. It was created with 38 vintage American cars, all of which were covered with gray paint and arranged in a circle. The architect, Jim Reinders, dedicated his construction to the June 1987 summer solstice.
Besides Carhenge itself, there are some other artworks made of old cars and painted with various colors.
