The original menhirs themselves, which were erected at the top of the town of Volary in April 2007, date back to pre-Christian times and are estimated to be several thousand years old. They originally stood on a nameless plateau in the Ore Mountains, where they formed the remains of a roundel of several dozen stones. The Holy Circle was decimated by a foreign construction company during the construction of the road passing through its center. Geologist and chemist Ing. Pavel Polák was responsible for the safe passage to Volary.
The current Volary rondel consists of eleven stones and functions partly as a sanctuary and partly as an observatory.
