Naurangabad Mound

Naurangabad Mound is situated near Naurangabad village, about 10 km from Bhiwani, in Bhiwani District of Haryana. It covers an area of about 58 acres.

Owing to its archeological importance, Naurangabad Mound was taken over by the government in 1985 and was handed over to Archeological Department. The excavations done here in 2001 revealed artifacts such as coins, coin moulds, statues, design of houses, tools and toys, most of them dating back to 2,500 years. The coins during the period of the Youdheyas bear the seals of religious figures.

According to archeologists, here existed a town during the Kushan, Gupta and Youdheya periods till 300 BC. Ruins of houses made of mud bricks and baked bricks, apart from the walls of about 18 to 24 inches and floors lined with baked bricks, were identified from here.

The antiquities revealed from the site are displayed in Archaeological Museum of Gurukul, Jhajjar.
