Few weeks back, we reported on the “excavations”:http://varnam.nationalinterest.in/archives/000171.html happening along the path that Saraswati river flowed.The excavations were planned from Adi Badri in Haryana to Dhaulavira in Gujarat. Now in Adi Badri a site dating 300 AD has been found
bq. Extensive excavation in the last seven months at Adi Badri site, 40 km north of the Yamunanagar district in Haryana, has yielded a 300 AD Kushan site ? and speculation that this may be the spot where the river had originated. The finds at the 200-foot-high Intowali site (ABR-II) include a monastery, Buddha statue, pottery, pieces of carved slabs, a meditation hall, verandah, an entrance, and several artefacts.
bq. Archaeologists say now there is enough evidence to prove that this was one of the major areas of inhabitation on the banks of the Saraswati that once flourished, and then disappeared without a trace.
