You'll find numerous monoliths in the Khasi and Jayantia hills. One of the largest collections of monoliths are found in Nartiang, Meghalaya. These are found near an auspicious Durga Temple and are believed to hold some religious significance. The serenity of this place gives it a peaceful aura. About 1.5 hrs drive from Krang Shuri waterfall, this place is definitely worth a visit.
Nartiang is again one of the oldest towns of Jaiñtia hills district and is located at a distance of 24 km away from Jowai. It used to be the summer retreat of kings to escape the heat of their Jaiñtiapur kingdom.
Hired a taxi - Innova for the entire trip from Shillong @ Rs.4000 per day.
Travel to Nartiang Monoliths - 40kms from Shillong city - many people might skip this but because of my varied interests I found them interesting, these are MONOLITHS ( large pieces of stones) which were erected approximately during 1500 AD to commemorate the glorious events of the Jaintia Kingdom.
Visit to nearby Nartiang Durga Temple
And the best part of the day was the near by Tyrshi waterfalls - a must go! Back to Shillong city - visited the church - really beautiful
Evening snack @ Shillong cafe - good and really famous
Dinner @ Lamee restaurant becoz vegetarians are choosy and have less options!
