Kumhrar Park Photos


Kumhrar Park is a protected place by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) where the ruins of the 80-pillared hall of Mauryan era was discovered.

A pillar is kept for demonstration purpose. The remarkable finesse of the pillar even after more than 2000 years is amazing.

The rest of the space has been covered with sand to avoid damages due to water logging and other factors. The excavated hall lies below this space.

There is also a small museum in the park where few of the artifacts recovered during the excavation are kept for display. It has many remarkable photographs taken during the excavation. A replica of the Mauryan 80-pillared Hall is also kept there. However, photography is not allowed inside the museum.

[About the Photos : All the photos have been taken using a canon camera. A bit of editing has been done, preserving the originality. The photos have been taken during 2012-13. ]

    1. True .... partly due to ignorance and partly due to government apathy. When the real monuments are covered with sand, then people can only see the parks and not the monuments ..
