Small, piles of rocky stones that are balanced trickily can be found in the most unseen and undiscovered places, apart from roadsides and monasteries. According to the locals, people do this to find inner peace and balance. It is a little stupa with rocks.
Balanced stones are a sign of deep focus, as it takes effort to pile odd shaped stones, of different weights. They are balanced in such a way that they remain undisturbed for a long period of time.
Sometimes it is done to mark a place of importance - where a person has spent time, or which a person finds meditative.
If observed carefully, even Ladakhi architecture follows this system of stacking rocks and stones to create partitions and walls, which are then simply filled in with cement or mud.
