The Šilalė rock is the fifth largest rock in Lithuania. It is on a hillock which used to be surrounded from all sides by swaps. There are several other rocks around it, including a cupmarked one and an altar rock. Archaeologists found a field kitchen next to one of the rocks, surrounded by a crown of stones. They found that the altar was a rock with a bowl that was on a post that was made of stones on the northern end of the operation. The rock was later put back in its original location so as to restore the full scene of holy grounds for pagans. Archaeologists found burned remains, sap and melted amber in the field kitchen and concluded that pagan rituals were conducted here. At one time a sacred stand of birch trees grew here.
