The Amazing Coral Castle in Homestead Florida Built by Edward Leedskalnin!

Michael Kohler
The mystifying Coral Castle, created in secret by an architectural genius, Edward Leedskalnin. From 1923 to he single-handedly carved over tons of coral rock into a castle near Miami, and took the secrets of his construction process to his grave.

This image has a lot in it as well. The North Wall with the "Crown" can be seen to the left. The triangular piece missing from the Crown was used by Ed to make the "eye piece" for the Polaris telescope. The Throne Room is to the right with the planets Mars and Venus. The Crescent of the East is also visible with Ed's Well right below it.

Ed's Tower. Below is the entrance to the tool room, and to the right are the 16 steps leading to Ed's room above. When you walk in Ed's room, on the left, are the "secret to the universe" numbers carved into the coral.

Lots of things in this picture! The coral camera stand is to the left. Ed first rocking chair and the Throne room are to the left in the background. The Crescent of the East, 9 Ton Gate and the 30 ton Obelisk that he brought from Florida City are in the back as well. The Grotto of the Three Bears in in the center, and the Repentance Corner is to the far right.

This chair was brought from Florida City, made from the smooth layered oolite coral at that site. The Coral Castle pamphlets mention that the chairs look "molded" because there are no chisel marks visible.

Another pics of the east end of the Coral Castle complex. I'm actually standing right in front of 6 pointed star above Ed's bathtub pointing toward the bedroom area. Homestead Florida, Coral Castle, Homesteading, Sidewalk, Bathtub, Star, Bedroom, Building, Standing Bath
