The archaeological site at Agroha, Haryana, commonly called the Agroha Mound, sits right beside NH9. All across the mound where rainwater has created gullies, we can see ancient bricks and walls exposed below surface level. Excavations have revealed occupation from about the 4th c AD till 14th c AD. The most interesting structure on the mound is a Buddhist “stupa”, which actually looks more like a religious complex, with possible living chambers as found in viharas. A little distance from the stupa is a much more recent (18th c) small fort built at the top of the mound.
In the first three photos a tall Hanuman statue and the tops of a couple of Hindu temples can be seen in the background, which are part of a large modern temple complex nearby, built by the Aggarwal community which traces its roots to Agroha.
