A tiny village in Telengana has suddenly become the centre of attraction as 30 megalithic burials believed to be dated between 1000 B.C and 200 A.D has been unearthed here.These are spread across 20 acres of the village.
The burials have huge boulders arranged around them and at least one of them has a Menhir which is the term used for a tall, huge standing stone.It has led to beliefs that the site may open new doors to the past.It can also give some idea into the lifestyles of the Megalithic period.
The biggest capstone has also been excavated in this site only.Also found were an iron dagger,black pottery and a bowl and a small sharp stone that was most probably being used to cut skin,meat and other food items.Although it is not confirmed whether the burials were in pits,cists or dolmens typical of that period yet it is a huge treasure that has been dug in terms of history.
