Visit the archeological site of Mahasthangarh to see the remains of the ancient city of Pundra Nagara. The area abounds with Hindu, Buddhist, and Muslim artifacts, with the highlight being a citadel made of red mud and brick walls, which dates back to the third century BCE. Near the citadel, visit Govinda Bhita Hindu Temple, built in the sixth century CE. The onsite museum exhibits various artifacts, which include a limestone slab inscribed with six lines in Brahmi script dating back to at least the third century BCE. In addition, you can see coins from different centuries, gold ornaments, and other objects recovered from the site.
