about unakoti

The name ' Unakoti' is a Bengali word, meaning one less than a crore. It is a Shaivite pilgrim spot full of ancient rock cut sculptures and stone carvings. Apart from its religious significance, the place is also a tourist magnet because of its surrounding natural beauty with rolling mountains, lush greenery and waterfalls.

There are a number of rock cut and stone sculptures on this hill. A special mention goes to the 30 feet high statue of Shiva, called the Unakotishwara Kal Bhairava. The headdress on the statue alone is 10 feet high. On either side, there are two female figurines, one of Goddess Durga standing on a lion, and other remains unidentified.

There are gigantic scuptures of Lord Ganesha and the Nandi Bull as well. It is said there one less than a crore sculptures of various Gods and Goddesses in the area. Today it is managed by the ASI and is declared as a heritage site. Every year during the month of April, Unakoti plays host to the Ashokashtami Mela, a huge fair visited by thousands of pilgrims every year.
