Pedra De Maldicao

Sacrificial Stone

Pedra De Maldicao, an ancient monument, is sited in the village of Anjuna. It is permanently fixed on a six-foot granite monolith. Also known as Accursed Stone, the Pedra De Maldicao lies there as a symbol that reminds of the murder of a Portuguese priest. It was a silent witness to several blood-curdling incidents. Now it is a shrine venerated by the people. People light candles and agarbattis to pay homage to the victims. It is a monument that stands as a symbol of inter-communal harmony.
