Excavations at Rajim

"This book is a report on excavation conducted at Rajim in 2012-14. The site revealed cultural periods from Pre-Mauryan to Kalchuri. Structural remains and antiquities belonging to Pre-Mauryan, Mauryan, Satvahana, Sarabhapuriya, Panduvamsi and Kalchuri periods were recovered. The dig proved that Rajim was apart from being an important religious centre, a well developed trade centre as a rock-cut port has been located at Sirkatli, on river Pairi. The site was devastated six times by the floods of Mahanadi which takes a turn to north-east at Rajim. The site in still flourshing even after 2500 years as an important religious centre of Chhattisgarh."                                                                                 [from Blurb]
