KRISHNAGIRI: A team of archaeologists has discovered more than 300 dolmens reportedly dating back to 3,000 years near Mallasandram here on Wednesday. They said it was for the first time such a large number of dolmens was discovered from a single place in Krishnagiri region.

A dolmen is a type of single-chamber megalithic tomb, usually consisting of two or more vertical megaliths supporting a large flat horizontal capstone. There are, however, more complex variants.

The dolmens were found amidst a heap of stones atop the 'Moral rock hillock' in Mallasandram.
