The Ark of the Covenant

the20new20arkrc5 Most Amazing Treasures Nobody Ever Found

To the ancient Israelites, the Ark of the Covenant was the most sacred thing on Earth. The central and paramount object of the Hebrew nation, this ornate chest was, according to the Bible, designed by God.

Measuring 44 inches long, 26 inches wide, and 26 inches high, the chest was made of acacia wood, overlaid inside and out with pure gold, and surrounded by an artistic gold border. Mounted on the solid gold cover were two golden cherubs, one at each end of the cover facing each other, with heads bowed and wings extending upward.

The Ark served as a holy archive for the safekeeping of sacred relics, including the two stone tablets of the Ten Commandments. As a historical and religious treasure, the Ark and its contents were absolutely priceless.

  1. Awesome post. There was a lot of information in there about which I had no idea!

  2. Secret Potato says:

    Whatever happend to Eldorado and the ark?

  3. Nice article. Kind of makes you want to think of going out and searching for some of those treasures!

  4. Gabriel Gadfly says:

    This was a good article. I’m glad to see some of the more obscure hidden treasures listed here.

  5. Whoa i never ever heard of any of these except ark.

  6. One of the most interesting articles I have read.

  7. Rather strange for sure that the coin on the picture in “Treasures of Lima” is identical with the Swedish “Krona” !?.

  8. “Secret Potato Says: Whatever happend to Eldorado and the ark?”

    SP: If by ark you mean “Noah’s ark,” the reason they’re not here is because those are both fictional.

  9. The American civil war had a treasure, the south’s money was removed from their capital city and transported. But it never got where it should have gone. Worth over $1M likely over $10M in gold.
    Some southern writers like
    Sharon McCrumb have dealt with this subject.

    Great article my friend, thank you for sharing it with us :)

    Please visit my blog :)

  11. MISS KITTY says:

    im gonna be the one to find these treasures

  12. Blackbeard says:

    Arghh. You’ll never find me booty!

  13. BillinDetroit says:

    Liz, there are photos of Mt. Ararat that show what looks to be an ark. I wouldn’t be too quick to dismiss it as fable — after all, you accepted the Ark of the Covenant.

  14. Turkey Traveller says:

    Yeah the controversial Ark in eastern Turkey has been in the news for decades, and stories of the great deluge pervade all the folk tales and mythology of that area of the world as well as three major religions.

  15. World Boy says:

    This is really story. It was on this story that the theme of tomb raider was built

  16. What? The Ark of the Covenant was found by Dr. Henry W. Jones Jr. in the late 1930’s.

  17. Mad Jayhawk says:

    Where is the blue dress?

  18. So the Ethiopians claim that they have the ark of the covenant in Aksum. Ethiopia developed its own strain of Orthodox Christianity very early in Christian history (this is largely attributed to Christs flight from Herod after his birth). The Ethiopian Orthodox Church claims to keep the Ark of the Covenant in a sacred chapel where it is guarded by an elder. Of course, no one but the elder is allowed to see it….

  19. maybe moktezuma had spend all his treassure in order to complace Hernan Cortes, therefore it would disappered slowly as far He and his heredors had expended all of it

  20. Dr. Jones says:

    Indeed my dear Sallah, the ark was found by me and my team and taken from the damned nazis in the 30’s only to be put in a warehouse by the american goverment never to be seen again. I got news that the artifact is for sale now in order to aid with the stimulus package for bankers and other noblemen.

  21. yeah…funny how, when the existence and location of something of great value is at question, those claiming to hold it will not let it be seen…leaving all who have any ability to reason to believe that they truly do not have possession of the item in question at all.

  22. If nobody ever found the treasure, then how do they have pictures? that just freaks me out!

  23. Actually, you are misinformed on the Ark of the Covenant. It is well known where it is and has been there for over a thousand years. It’s in a small town in Ethiopia. I know the town’s name, but will let you research it. The descendants of the same people God put in charge of it, take care of it to this day. This is NOT made up. Do your research. I suggest you start with reading the Bible and read about Bob Cornuke and his travels/ findings.

  24. fun-da-mental says:

    Amazingly interesting that was!

    I guess the amber room is still somewhere in the hands of some old Nazis…

  25. SkonOfVulcan says:

    No mention of Oak Island in Canada? They know who put the treasure there, where it is and have a general idea as to how much is there. But despite people trying for over 100 years they have been unable to get past all the traps that were built in. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oak_Island

  26. Mount Nebo is NOT in Egypt. For the record … Mount Nebo is in central Jordan, due east of Jerusalem, overlooking the Jordan river valley and the Dead Sea. From it, Moses viewed the ‘Promised Land’.

  27. Megha Syam says:

    This is incredible , with so many mysteries and awesome information

  28. Search the Yamashita Treasure which was buried in the Philippines.. Legend is, that the Yamashita treasure which was brought to the Philippines during WWII was worth so much it could pay-off the whole country’s debt.

  29. “If by ark you mean “Noah’s ark,” the reason they’re not here is because those are both fictional.”

    There are plenty of people, historians, scholars, and just in general, alot of people that disagree with this. Just because one doesnt believe something doesnt mean it isnt real. The Ark of the Covenant for instance is about as much a part of history as anything could be.

  30. So…the Amber Room was 11 foot square, huh? No wonder it’s missing. Just like your proof-reading skills.

  31. I can’t believe that in this wikipedia age people commit such barbarisms as Writing Montezuma and Tezcuco…

    sorry for my poor english

  32. Stefanie Rinza says:

    Greatly enjoyed the blog on lost treasures. Have been following any news on the Amber Room for some time. Still think it may turn up…

  33. Well am afraid that I might have some bad news, the ark of covenant has been fond and for the safety of the artifact it has been kept secret from the rest of the world and I am proud to b a part of the Ethiopian orthodox Christian church and as an Ethiopian I must say it is un wise to show the ark because many people like your self who as far as I could tell has a positive attitude towards the ark might want to know the truth what we are afraid of is that there might be people with evil means recently the locals of the area has found people with agendas to retrieve the ark which are directly funded by the Israeli government I know that from a first hand information sores who was present in the scenario.
    Imagine the damage it well cause on our church which by the way is one of the oldest in the world and still is preserving its merits for a country like ours its not wise to show the ark to the world not because we don’t want to but because we don’t have the capability to triumph over the outcome and believe me it is what every Ethiopian is thinking so do you want to see the ark? Just be patent and have faith like a real Christian and TIME WELL
    DISCLOSE EVERY THING and for the dought you have, YES WE HAVE THE ARK OF COVINANT!

  34. Well am afraid that I might have some bad news, the ark of covenant has been fond and for the safety of the artifact it has been kept secret from the rest of the world and I am so proud to b a part of the Ethiopian orthodox Christian church so what ever crazy plan you have about dipping in to sea or getting in to a cave with no oxygen forget it cause we already have the ark

  35. Two MAJOR omissions…

    Alexander The Great’s gold and crystal sarcophagus

    Gengis Khan’s tomb

    These are known to actually be somewhere on the planet, but have yet to be discovered. Two of the greatest treasures of all!

  36. Jimmy Johnson says:

    In order to believe the Ark of the Covenant exists, you have to be rather naive. If God created the universe, I’m sure he had better things to do than dictate the conduct of man.

    Supernovae, galaxies crashing together, black holes, and dark matter make the morality of man a moot point.

    Laws are created by man to govern themselves, in case anybody missed that obvious fact.

  37. I can’t believe that in this wikipedia age people commit such barbarisms as Writing Montezuma and Tezcuco
