Unakoti

Unakoti
It is ‘Shaiba’ (Shaivite) pilgrimage and dates back to 7th – 9th centuries. Unakoti means one less than a crore. The rock carvings, murals, waterfalls are not to be missed. As per Hindu mythology, when Lord Shiva was going to Kashi along with one crore gods and goddesses he made a night halt at this location. He asked all to wake up before sun rise and proceed for Kashi. In the morning, except Shiva, no one else could get up so Lord Shiva set out for Kashi himself cursing the others to become stone images. As a result we have one less than a crore stone images and carvings at Unakoti.
