Erected for foundation of Utena town. Name Utena was mentioned for the first time in historical sources in 1261 when Mindaugas, transferring some lands to the Sword-bearers, included the name of Utena. At that time it was not a town but wooden castle situated by Utenėlė rivulet on Narkūnai Castle-Hill.
