An archeological site, Bhita, on the banks of the Yamuna River
, is about 20 km south of Allahabad
. Excavations here revealed a cluster of objects such as the images of Lord Shiva
and Goddess Parvati
, terracotta figurines of seated women and a votive tank. These antiquities are believed to be the remains of an ancient fortified city dating back to Gupta
periods. Points of interests include a museum.
