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

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

stone grew and dumped into the water. At
the air pressure, Ågerup church got a

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.
