A place as old as time!
Once on the route, penetrate through the thatched roof village and lush green farms, you'll find yourself standing among an archaeological treasure trove. Surrounded by a horse-shoe shaped Karela Jheel which is dry to the bone now, here lies the traces and remnants of an ancient civilization that had set up base in this area around 1000 BC, which is almost 3000 years ago.
The local priest of the Kaleshwari Devi Temple, Maniram, had chanced upon some artefacts from this area and it was his 'accidental' find that prompted the disinterring of this locale. Excavations here have revealed that Hulas Khera is a witness to a highly functional civilization dating back to the medieval times.
Archaeologists have found articles like pottery, coins, terracotta images, amidst other items but out of all that was uncovered, the most substantial finding was a gold leaf image of 'Kartikeya', the God of War, which is now exhibited at the State Museum in Lucknow.
