A mysterious monolith was spotted at the Symphony Park in Ahmedabad's Thaltej area in December last year. Reportedly, the structure was made of metal and was nearly 6 feet tall. Now, the monolith has disappeared and has been replaced by a metallic sphere and an anonymous note from a city-based artist. The artist is suspected to be behind the monolith, said an Indian Express report.

According to a post by the Symphony Forest Park, “The note asks us to continue supporting our national parks and wildlife reserves. The sphere represents the constant change that occurs in the world around us.”

The note reads: "..and so too has impermanence given us an opportunity for change. Change, we shall." "From 80-year-olds to 8-year-olds, the genuine curiosity and boundless enthusiasm you have shown, has given me more than I could have asked for. I thank you for your attention, and I ask you to further direct it towards the natural beauty that lives all around us," the note added.

Earlier, the gardener of the park had said that he hadn't see anyone placing the structure. "When I went home in the evening, it was not there. But when I returned to work the next morning, I was surprised to see the structure," he had said.
