An Introduction to

The Famous Mazes of the World


Have you ever wondered how labyrinths and mazes ever come about? Who built the first labyrinths and mazes? Actually, nobody really knows, or ever will know. However, here I have a tiny collection of the more significant mazes around the world. I can show you what are some of the earliest mazes and how they look like. Maybe you can find a maze that you particularly like in our gallery, be it the first dateable unicursal labyrinth or the earliest known multicursal maze.

To give you an overall picture, a timeline is designed for you (containing links to the different mazes) in the left frame when you enter the page. Just click on the links and it would bring you to your desired locations.
