Many people believe that the Ark of the Covenant is located in Rosslyn Chapel, a centuries-old church just outside Edinburgh, Scotland. In fact, Rosslyn Chapel is the target of a number of crazy conspiracy theories, wild claims, and bizarre speculations, even though there is no proof for these theories.
The chapel is even said to be the location of interdimensional portals and intergalactic frequencies. The Dan Brown novel (and eventual film) The Da Vinci Code—which used the chapel as a key location in its story—only thrust the church even further into the spotlight. With that in mind, here are 10 of the craziest and most interesting conspiracy theories about Rosslyn Chapel.
10. It Holds The Holy Grail
Many people also believe that the legendary Holy Grail resides within the walls of this particular house of God. Of course, there is no actual proof of this. But speculation has been rife of a connection between the ancient relic and Scotland for hundreds of years.
The legends of the Holy Grail and the journey it took to get to Scotland are almost identical to the theories about the Ark of the Covenant. This has led many to believe that both relics are, in fact, one and the same. Supposedly, the Holy Grail was brought to Rosslyn Chapel by the Knights Templar and has been hidden there ever since.
