passage grave in Tustrup

This is a passage grave from neolithic age or newer stone age around 3200 years b.c.

It is nearby where i live and sometimes at solstice you can be lucky to see the grave fillled with light inside of it...while the construction was made due to the rising sun ...but new science think the entrance was contructed at the direction of the full moon and that the people at this time did have rituals evolving the moon...

I have heard about this place in a radioprogram and a lady priest often walks there with her dog and at wintersolstice she did see the rising sun just sending it´s light directly into the grave chamber and it made it look like the whole grave was on fire and she felt it like all the stones were dancing....extraordinary experience, I think....
