Remains of Twenty-One 1300-year-old-plus Temples Found Near Bhopal

BHOPAL, INDIA : The Archaeological Survey of India has found the remains of 1300-year-old temples at Ashapuri village, 36km from Bhopal. The remains of the temples are massive. Of the 21 temples, the one dedicated to Bhoothnath was the biggest. The archaeologists have named the excavation project Bhootnath Temple series.

“We have found ruins of temples dating back 1300 years, even before the Parmar dynasty,” said Ashok Das, Madhya Pradesh commissioner of the Archaeological Survey. “Pratihar dynasty rulers in this area constructed temples with steeple-shaped structure. These temples were large and beautiful. The 21 temples you can see here were made during the Pratihar rule.”

The excavators have found over 400 remains of murtis of Hindu Gods and Goddesses. The state government has taken the responsibility of preserving these relics of Indian history.

Locals claimed that the Mughal rulers had razed these temples.
