There are many huge rocks here. There is a small plaque explaining the legend that rocks were brought here by a giant. It would be good to have more explanation. Overall a nice stop on the way from Jowai to Shillong. Roads are very good.

It's located in quite secluded place and it's almost pin drop silent. The tall megaliths were supposedly made and erected by a Jaintia warrior some 400-500 years ago. Nice to relax and away from noise
