Janti Dhunga

Janti Dhunga is located in Tulsipur, Dang, Nepal. In the Nepali language “janti” means followers of the marriage procession, mostly relatives, and friends of the bridegroom, and “dhunga” means stone. There are thousands of stones in different shapes and sizes in the Jhankari Dunga community forest.


Locals say, many years ago janti (a group of people) took a rest in this place and all of them were turned into stone. After this incident, this place is known as Janti Dhunga. These stones look as if a group of people sitting in a row. It is not only about stones but there are stones in a complete form of a janti. There is doli and horse-shaped stones too. Doli used to carry the bride and the horse was for the bridegroom to ride.
