It is said that Lord Shankar wandered in the sky with the dead body of Parvati (Sati). To bring him out of at cataclysm for the dead body Lord Vishnu using his “Sudarshan Chakra” cut the body into pieces. During this process it is said that one of the piece from the body fell in the area which is 12 km from Malinithan towards Along in west Siang District. This place is called Akasiganga and is very popular as a sacred place. There is a temple near the road. From there one has to go down 100 meters down through a spiral path, where a sparkling object can be seen in the ‘Kund’ but on going more down the object is invisible.
