Ancient Narasingha Monolith, Susunia

 

The Narasingha stone (Narsimha) is an ancient carved monolith located on the foot of Susunia hill, near the Kali mandir and the point where the spring water is coming out of another stone gargoyle or curved projected spout. 

The gargoyle spouting out spring water. 


The antiquity of this monolith is unknown. We can only assume that it came in to being some thousand years ago and was considered for worship may be 3000-4000 years ago, initially by the tribals. Of course the numbers can only go up. It is believed to be representing Narsimha, the 4th avatar of Vishnu of his Dashavatars.
