Panchalimedu

The great Indian epic, the Mahabharata, has five Pandava princes – Yudishtira,
Arjuna, Bhima, Nakula and 
Sahadeva – as its protagonists. 
The Pandavas, along with their wife Draupati aka Panchali, were exiled 
from Indraprastha following Yudishtira’s defeat in a game of dice with Duryodhana,
the ruler of Hastinapura.  
Legend has it that while they were roaming the forests of Kerala
during their 13 year exile, Panchali Medu was a favorite camping ground for them. 

Do the five monoliths seen atop Panchalimedu represent the Pandavas? Could be.
