Asota Megaliths


Asota Megaliths:

The megalithic complex of Asota in Khyber Pakhtunkhawa Pakistan is one of the last remaining portion of a stone circle of the sub continent. This fascinating megalithic site is situated near a village called Shewa.

The monument once comprised about 32 menhirs having an average height of about 3.5 meters and the circle had a diameter of about a 17 meters. The menhirs are found to be placed at uneven gaps, the minimum space between the menhirs is 0.67 and the maximum is 1.34 meters.

At one time when the stone circle stood with full majesty two smaller stones could have been seen positioned adjacent to each other which perhaps marked the entrance within the circle.
