Giant Footprint – Delft
The destination was the “Giant’s Footprint”. Which was located few miles in to the island and we traveled across beautiful paddy fields and small water tanks. Finally arrived at that point and the foot print is engraved in to a stone. The soil on that area is very different and I have never seen anything like that. Also people said that there is a similar foot print in Nainathiv.
The giants foot-print is referred to by locals as the foot print of a 40 foot tall man. They also allege that a similar foot print is to be found in Nagadeepa. The photo indicates the size of the depression in the rock when compared to the foot of yours truly. Skeptics amongst us started visualizing giant hand prints etc in the surrounding area. The rock in this area is quite different from other areas – like hardened bluish grey ash. Perhaps some chemical analysis may shed some light. This foot print is on private property and quite conveniently the boundary wall was already broken, providing easy access.
This is an interesting rock formation due to erosion which resembles a very large footprint of almost a meter long. Visitors often gather here to witness this natural landscape.
