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.

We could not find the place easily. would be good if it is marked properly with a sign board. Beautiful roads and scenery. had difficulty in communication as people don't know the language.

You can go from Jowai or from Shillong, road is very good between Shillong and Jowai. This Nartiang Monoliths or Stone Garden is a historical place, you can spend some quite time with friend or family surrounding by various monoliths. Moreover, It would be an ideal place for photo shoot.

This could be a huge attraction, if only there were some properly trained guides to explain he history and mythology behind these monoliths. A decent place to eat nearby wouldn't hurt either. Otherwise, its a good place to stop and see whilst on your way elsewhere.

Nartiang boasts of this Monolith Park which is a unique park in itself. It reminds us of the similar Stonehedge of England. However, this one is bigger in area and has many more numbers of Monoliths than the original one. This park was created in memory of the Jaintia warriors and kings and has been converted into a tourist spot... More

There are a lot of monoliths and some are really huge. Make sure you visit the Durga Temple which is nearby. Human sacrifices used to take place there.

Same monoliths you can see and near Sohra village, in this place their more, but nothing special. Good park in ancient place. Entry free. We visited it by way to Kaziranga from Tripura because short road was blocked.

The park is located almost 17km from the highway. 95% of the road is in excellent condition and the view along the journey is so serene and calm that one forgets all their worries. Not too touristy like shillong...but have great potential. The monoliths are awesome. I just loved it!!

To get to this place, it's a bumpy ride off the main highway. The placed is steeped in history but sadly, it is so poorly maintained - heart breaking. The monoliths are grand to look at and leaves you wondering how such huge slabs of stone were erected. Being a site with very few tourists, it is kind of neglected.... More
