The pool is nineteen and a half ft in length and fifteen ft in breadth and the replica of an elephant was carved out of the same rock. The kings and their families of North East India are said to visit this ghat before performing their cultural and religious rites and ceremonies. Jaintia kings had two capitals Nartiang in summer and Jaintiapur in winter. While travelling they used to take bath here.
