Being there makes you feel like you’ve been transported. The intricate civilization and its structures and organization of the irrigation of sewage system is considered ahead of their times. Even the cultural advancements that have been studied, have seem to be more advanced than any other place at that time!
The structure is now threatened by erosion due to improper preservation.

There are now orchards where “Hathi khana” and stables used to be.
