MUNDESVARI

It would appear from numerous heaps of bricks that the town of Garohat extended about 11 miles from east to west, and half a mile from north to south; it has not been fortified; but I believe that all the passes into the valley have been defended by lines. I thought that I could trace a very high rampart and wide ditch running in a straight line from the great mass of hills to the detached hill east from Bhagawanpur and in the pass between the latter and the detached hill next to it towards the west, at the village of Suraiya, has been collected some fragments of images called Hanuman, who at present is a favourite in that part of the country; but none of them have the smallest resemblance to a monkey.

I could trace three of them to resemble entirely, what in the ruins of the Behar Cheros were called Ganesa, Hargauri leaning on a bull and lion, and Narayana riding on Garuda. A head also resembled that of the image called Vasudeva.The work, which by the vulgar are attributed to the Cheros, extended also all along the north side of the detached hills, both east and west from Garohat, where they have left several tanks and reservoirs, and some scattered images. Among these Rumajaya my native assistant, on the road between Majhar and Garohat, observed a Buddha seated in usual posture. The most remarkable of these detached works is, however, the temple of Mundesvarialready mentioned.
