Meaning of Unakoti:-

It is because of these mysterious idols that this place got its name Unakoti, which means one less in a million. This place is considered one of the biggest mysteries of India. For many years no information could be obtained about this place. However, still very few people know about this place.


Unakoti is a Mysterious Place: - Unakoti is called a mysterious place because it is a hilly area surrounded by thick forests far and wide. Now, how could millions of idols be built in the middle of the forest, because these works take many years and earlier no one lives around this area. This has been a subject of debate and research for a long time.

Mythology related to Unakoti:
- There are many myths about the idols of Hindu gods and goddesses carved on stones and made by cutting stones here.

Story of Lord Shiva and One Crore Gods and Goddesses:- It
is believed that once one crore Gods and Gods including Lord Shiva were going to some place. As it was night, the gods and goddesses asked Shivaji to rest at Unakoti.

Shivaji agreed, but at the same time he said that everyone would have to leave this place before sunrise. But at sunrise only Lord Shiva could wake up, all other gods and goddesses were sleeping. Seeing this, Lord Shiva got angry and cursed and turned everyone into stone. This is why there are 99 lakh 99 thousand 999 idols here, that is less than one in a crore.

Story of Sculptor and Lord Shiva:-
Another story is prevalent regarding the making of these idols. It is said that there was a sculptor named Kalu, who wanted to go to Mount Kailash with Lord Shiva and Mother Parvati, but it was not possible. However, due to the sculptor's stubbornness, Lord Shiva told him that if he made one crore idols of gods and goddesses in one night, he would take the sculptor with him to Kailash.

Hearing this, the sculptor became absorbed in his work and quickly started making idols one by one. He made idols all night, but when he counted in the morning, he found that one idol was short. This is why Lord Shiva did not take that sculptor with him. This is why this place is called Unakoti.
