Khasi monoliths showcase a deep preserved culture of Khasi people. The huge monoliths can be found around Pynursla too.

Stop here for a few minutes...
Oct 2019
...whenever u pass by on way to EcoPark, Maswamai caves or Seven Sister falls.
These monoliths are old, historic, sombre and have a story...!
Yet standing just on the side of the main road - where you will drive by a few times, you may just miss them completely.

Khasi monoliths are a way they honoured their heros'... both men and women.
A tall stone slab was erected vertically to honor men, a flat stone slab placed horizontally for women.
There are a few more in Eco Park as well... !

Monoliths are Khasis way of remembering ancestors. Beautiful Monoliths.

Khasis pay tributes to their ancestors by erecting monoliths. I have missed these monoliths many a times but this time I wanted to stop for a few minutes and appreciate the spirit behind this Khasi custom. When we neared the monoliths it started raining. I took a minute to get down and take some photographs.Maybe I will get one more chance to appreciate it better.

More of Kasi tradition

More of Kasi tradition rather than touristy. If you wish to understand the tribal traditions of Kasi, you would enjoy this place.

Trip Summary: Delhi-Guwahati-Shillong-Cherrapunji-mawyalong-Dawki-Shillong-Guwahati-Delhi - 4 days

We actually passed by this place and spend just few mts as we had to go to some other place and we had taxi and schedule. These monoliths, small and huge , in Sohra area are very common as they symbolises some ancestors. You can see many more in Mawphlang Sacred forest.

I chose to skip due to other good ones due to time constraints..

It's a great place where we get to see the Kashi culture and the lifestyle they led. I visited the place with family and stayed at Saimika, which was a pleasurable stay.

Remembering ancestors

Monoliths are knows as remembering ancestors. In Meghalaya many places you can see the monoliths, especially in Jayantia hills.
Something peculiar for outside world people.
