Indian archaeologists uncover remains of ancient empire in Jharkhand

BERO: A team of Indian archaeologists unearthed the remains of an ancient empire in Bero region of eastern Jharkhand state.

It was for the first time that concrete evidence of erstwhile Nagvanshi rulers, who once used to rule in the region, has been found by the archaeology

department of Jharkhand Government.

The department is excavating the site of 'Khukhragarh', which is about 50 Kilometres from the capital city Ranchi. Khukhragarh used to be the capital of the Nagvanshi rulers.

The department has successfully excavated the remains of the dynasty's Khukhragarh Fort dating back to 12th century. The walls of the fort and other things are still intact giving hope to the archaeologists that they can explore further.

According, to the archaeologists working on the site, they have discovered an ancient temple while excavating.

“Here we have found a temple complex, which was twice destroyed and was constructed again. We have found evidence for that. As far the date is

concerned, it was reconstructed in the 14th century and in that favour we have coins of ancient 'Sultanate' period dating back to 14th century,” said

Harendra Prasad Sinha, Deputy Director Department Of Archaeology, Jharkhand.

Efforts are also being made to trace the history of the place and information about Nagvanshi rulers. The information gathered from the nearby

villagers, has also helped the archaeologists gain some insight into the history of the Nagvanshi rulers.

“18 emperors of Nagvanshi ruled from Khukhragarh and the 18th ruler was King 'Bhim Karna' who shifted his capital from here,” said Shiv Nath

Sahu, a local.

The experts are excavating every part of the site meticulously and are confident of discovering the history of the whole region.

Several precious coins, pottery and other remains have also been found which are a reminder of rich art and culture prevailing at that time. AGENCIES
