The friendship of the worldview of the Balts and the Christian worldview is very clear in Alka Hill of Naujoji Įpiltis. Today a wooden chapel stands there. In ancient times, there was a pagan temple, i.e. shrine hill, on Alka Hill. It is told that in antiquity sacrifices to the ancient gods were made and priestesses would stoke up and foster the sacred fire on the hill. The legends tell that later the shrine vanished into thin air. The shrine hill has been respected since ancient times: after the introduction of Christianity, people still gather here to celebrate outings, sing litanies to the Blessed Virgin Mary. In ancient times, youngsters called up for military service would gather at the chapel to pray; they would leave flowers and wreaths of tree branches here. The local residents who would suffer from scabies or other not serious diseases would come to the hill to get rid of the disease; they would crawl around the chapel on the knees, pray and donate money.
