Are 7 stunning rock pillars in Russia on the small mountain of Electric Universe idols? With strange angles, twists, pipes in them and up to 200 feet high (40 meters), how has this group of isolated megaliths remained and why were they formed?
The Manpupuner rock formations are a set of 7 stone pillars located west of the Ural mountains, in the Mansi language - a small mountain of idols. They are also known as the Seven Strong Men Rock Formations and the Poles of the Komi Republic. Their name in the Komi language means Mountain of idols.
The height of the rocks varies between 30 and 42 metres. About 200 million years ago at the location of the stone pillars there were high mountains. Rain, snow, wind, frost and heat gradually eroded the mountains. Solid sericite-quartzite schists, from which the remains are composed, were eroded less and survive today. Soft rocks were destroyed by weathering and carried by water and wind into depressions.
One pillar, 34 meters high, stands somewhat apart from the others. It resembles an inverted bottle. Six others lie at the edge of the cliff.

The pillars are also called the 'Seven Giants' or 'Seven Strong Men'. According to a local legend, the stone pillars were once an entourage of Samoyeds giants walking through the mountains to Siberia in order to destroy the Mansi people.
However, the men were confronted by a shaman with the white face, called Yallingner, who turned all the warriors into stones. Yallingner himself was turned into a stone, and since then, the seven formations have been standing in the area, with one facing the other six.
