In India similar landscape figures of recumbent pregnant Mother Goddesses and sleeping giants can be seen and many are found to be aligned to megaliths. The 'Gaya mahatma' talks of the sleeping giant Gayasur on whom Lord Vishnu conducts a yagna. The sleeping giant figure of Gayasur though vaguely visible due to overcrowded buildings all around yet the figure is identifiable from the river Falgu looking towards the city.
