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

Monolith is a geological feature consisting of a single massive stone or rock, or a single large piece of rock placed within a monument. Nartiang Monolith are most significant but neglected structure. It is about 63 Km from Shillong Meghalaya. There are large clusters of monoliths at the place, which have been erected to mark the reign of the Jaintia Kings. It is said these monoliths are the structure laid down during1600 AD. Being neglected place,one can just walk and spend some time sitting over there. There are no restaurant or food joints on the way, as well as near to this site. The tourism department must maintain such a historical place.

It's out of touristy circuit but definitely worth visit if you have time. It's about 63 kms from shillong. As soon as you enter garo hills , landscapes changes. There is not much too see enroute from shillong to this place. Lot of monoliths are erected at one place. One can just walk in and spend some time there. No fees for the monument and couldn't even locate any guard.

Tip: you wont find good resturants or food joints. Ensure proper rationing, if kids are travelling with you.

The Monolith Garden at Nartiang is the largest cluster of monoliths at a single place in the state of Meghalaya. Monoliths are memorials for people or events. The Nartiang monoliths have been erected to mark the reigns of the erstwhile Jaintia Kings, holding a significant event in the history of Meghalaya.
