This big boulder of Tempelkrogens Manglestenen or just Manglestenen is located at the beach edge, south of the eastern end of the dam. It is also known as Lommestenen or the Femfingrestenen. It has four parallel grooves and a deep slit. If you look closely, you can clearly see that they are fingerprints!

Location: Krogvejen, 4390 Vipperød - og så øst, ud på diget langs fjorden.
GPS: 55°39'28.5"N 11°46'44.6"E   55.657913, 11.779065

Size: Around 1,4 metres high, 1,9 metres wide and 3,4 meters long. It is 7,5 metres in circumference.

Meaning of the name: It should be translated to the ironing-stone. The other names is pocket stone and five finger stone. "Tempelkrogen" is the location. The name comes from the fact that a small Catholic congregation, which had previously had a monastery on Munkholm, tried to survive the Reformation and established a wooden church, "The Temple" south of Eriksholm. When the Bishop of Roskilde became aware of this, he had the Temple burned down. However, the place gave its name to Tempelkrogen.

Origin: ?

Legend: The marks are from the fingers of the troll who went with the stone in his pocket for a long time. He lived in Nellikehøj near Dyvelslyst. In furious irritation over the church bells from Ågerup, he threw the stone, but at flying speed the stone grew and dumped into the water. At the air pressure, Ågerup church got a crack, which could not be sealed.
According to another legend, the troll threw the stone from Kongstrup. Here, too, it affected Ågerup church. He fumbled in it and simply threw too far. The stone dumped in Eriksholm Vig next to Ågerup Møllegårds Enghave.
A third troll stood on Husbjerg in Ågerup parish and his stone fell into two pieces! He aimed at Sonnerup church, but one half of the stone fell near Ågerup town.
Then there is the troll from Huulsbjerg, who also threw stones! Huulsbjerg is located between Vinstrup and Algestrup.
And finally there was a troll who lived on Asserholm. He hated his more affluent neighbour on Munkholm. The two were standing and arguing over the water and one day Asserholm's troll became so mad at the neighbour that he threw a stone at him. His aim has not been too good either. The stone reportedly bears traces of five fingers.
