The people would carve hero stones for those heroes to remember their sacrifice and worship them.
“We have discovered three hero stones in Alukkuli village.
Those heroes were also found slitting their throats with knives on their left hands.”“We believe that the three hero stones were part of Chellandiamman temple.
The other two hero stones were 90cm high and 50cm wide.
As all the sculptures were in Hoysala architecture style, we assessed that they could be six centuries old,” Ravikumar added.
