The Big Book of Ancient Gabanian Fables states that Tellawow built this Monument to represent himself as well as create the massive island of Tellawow which today holds the Kingdom of Russia, Jurassic Park, The Republic of Gain and California, Athens and a piece of Puerto Rico.
According to Religious law nothing on the planet shall be taller than Mt. Tellawow or the God's would punish the People. That is why the JPT-Cybordyne is just shy of reaching the peak of Mt. Tellawow's Height. It is also considered very sacred and nothing but some temples are allowed to be built on the mountain. Religious law forbids non heros from being buried on the mountains face. It is believed that the Mountain is the portal and gates to both the Underworld and the Kingdom of Athena.
