Resumé

Śālagrāmas are stones from the area along and around the Kali Gandaki gorge in the Mustang district of Nepal with its center in the town of Muktinath. More specifically, śālagrāmas are ammonite fossils or fossil concretions found in especially high numbers in that area. These fossils are worshipped as natural, aniconic manifestations of Viṣṇu due to a circular pattern of lines, regarded as imprints of Viṣṇu’s discus (cakra).
