State archaeological heritage (State Inspection for Heritage Protection, No 2346). The stone is rather large, overgrown with moss. The stone is located about 1 km of the Pandari homestead, one has to cross a meadow and a clearing. Nearby there is a trunk of a dead-tree that is the only landmark for finding the stone also for the local people.

Comments
The Pandari Ancient Burial Ground is situated in the private property of the Pandari homestead; the size of the ground can be determined by the pine-trees growing on the hillock where the ancient burial ground is situated (from 1 dead pine-tree to 2 nearby growing pine-trees). There is no evidence about the ancient burial ground, the hillock is overgrown with trees.
