Šakališkių piliakalnis

Šakališkiai mound

Did you know that sometimes mounds are talking or people dreaming them at night?
Once, before the Japanese-Russian war, Antanas Karalius had the idea of ploughing up the Šakališkės mound. As he thought of it, he did it - he took his beloved ox and ploughed the top of the mound and sowed some crops there.
That same night, the farmer had a dream. He heard a muffled voice: „If you tear my head, you will not live long, and you will have a loss.“
When Antanas Karalius woke up, he just ignored the dream, but three days later, the ox that had torn the top of the mound died.
Since then, nobody dares to plough there or sow anything.
