Monument Stones

Khasi land has a number of monument stones. The horizonal slabs resting on pedistals are lady stones.The tall, upright stones are "man" stones (!). The man stones generally are found in a small series of about 3 and are oriented in a line which points the direction of a trail that goes to a town or other location.

This unusual collection of stones is a dense cluster of both kinds of monuments. The government set it aside as a park.
