GROUND RADAR SURVEY SIMPLIFIER: BHOJSHALA COMPLEX-



Mhow, Madhya Pradesh


What is happening at the Bhojshala Complex?

The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) is conducting a survey at the Bhojshala / Kamal Maulana mosque compound in Mhow, Madhya Pradesh, to identify buried structures using ground penetrating radar (GPR).

What is ground penetrating radar (GPR)?

GPR is a technology that uses radar pulses to image the subsurface. It helps in detecting buried objects, changes in material, and voids without digging.

Why is GPR being used in this survey?

GPR is used to limit excavation, allowing archaeologists to locate and study buried structures without disturbing the site extensively.

Where is the GPR being used in the Bhojshala Complex?

The GPR is being used inside the main hall, which is considered the sanctum sanctorum of the Waghdevi temple, and around the ‘Hawan Kund’ area outside it. It is also being deployed near the main gate on the eastern side of the complex.

What has been found so far using GPR and excavation?

Three stone artifacts have been unearthed during the excavation outside the Bhojshala main monument. One artifact is a white marble piece resembling a broken idol, while the other two appear to be simple stones. These artifacts have been taken for further examination by the ASI.

What are the next steps in the survey?

The ASI team plans to scan the Kamaal Moulana dargah premises next using GPR.
