Category Historic

Dating back to the Buddhist era, The Buddha statue at Bhongpal and historic mounds are remains of the Mauryan and Gupta periods. Historians predict that this place is located on the way that used to connect with the country’s southern states. There is a vast brick-built Chaitya temple at Bhongpal. This Chaitya temple was the prime centre of religious propagation and served as the living centre for Buddhist priests. Nearby at the remnants of an old temple, there is a statue of Saptamatrika in which the seven goddesses, Vaishnavi, Kaumari, Indrani, Maheshwari, Varahi, Chamunda and Narsinghi are chiselled on a single piece of stone.
