Nartiang, holding sheer archaeological and historic importance, is a beautiful place in the Jaintia Hills. It is dotted with several monoliths and majority of them are located near the local market Mawlong and thus rightly earned title 'Garden of Monoliths'. It was once the headquarters of the Jaintia Kings. The village is famous for a cluster of monoliths of which the tallest is said to have been the walking stick of U Mar Phalyngki, the Goliath of Jaintia legend.
