Unakoti has a fascinating legend that adds to its allure. According to the tale, Lord Shiva once stopped here on his way to Kashi and brought along 9999999 of his friends. But the next morning, when he woke up, he was the only one who wasn’t still asleep! In a fit of rage, Lord Shiva cursed his friends and turned them into stone, which is why you can now find countless stone sculptures at Unakoti.
And if all this isn’t enough, Unakoti is vying for a UNESCO world heritage tag, so you know it’s worth the visit. So what are you waiting for? Come and witness the divine rock concert at Unakoti and experience the magic for yourself!
