2000 year old archeological remains found in Jhapa, Nepal

The ruins of two thousand-year-old buildings have been found in Kichakbadhsthal, a historic place in Jhapa district. They include remains of walls of building made of bricks measuring 36 centimeters long, 26 centimeters wide and 5 centimeters thick, and an earthen lamp and urn. According to Uddav Acharya, chief officer at the Department of Archeology, the archeological remains bear a resemblance to those of buildings constructed during the period of Sunga and Kupan some two thousand years ago. The condition of remains shows the buildings might have collapsed by a strong earthquake in the fifth century. Earlier this year, archeologists had also found ancient artifacts in Kalimati in Parbat district.
