VALIULIS AND FATHER OF VALIULIS

Historic sites

Valiulis and Father of Valiulis are witnesses of Balts’ mythology and Lithuanian history, part of an ancient sanctuary formed by Goy (Gojs) or Sacrificial Grove and Stone – Father of Valiulis. Several centuries ago, in an irregularly-shaped milestone a horseshoe with a cross and an arrow was carved in. Valiulis is considered to be the name of the local deity – the host. The second carved sign might be related to the 20th century and designed to draw the attention of teacher and researcher Petras Tarasenka. Legends about Valiulis were underlying to P. Tarasenka’s book “The Enchanted Treasures”, which prompted many to inquire about the history of the region.
