The Verduliu Stone, also known as the Devil's Stone, stands in the surroundings of Verduliu Village, which is a part of Radviliškis Eldership, in the territory of Radviliškis District Municipality. The Stone was included in the Register of Cultural Values of Lithuania on 13 January 1999 and it was assigned a unique object code: 16209. According to the stories told by the elderly people in Radviliškis region, earlier the devils used to race over the world at nights competing with each other who would bring the heaviest stone faster and further. One of the devils was running with a huge boulder on his back when a rooster started crowing. The devil threw away the boulder even causing the ground to shake and ran away. When the night was over, people saw the Devil's Stone in the morning.
