Royal Palace

One of the most interesting places to visit is the ruins of the old Royal Palace. Built in 1430, this palace had massive wooden columns which were later burnt to the ground, leaving behind only the ruins. So far, a total of sixteen squares have been unearthed. In all, four layers are visible. One can tell the basal soil level by its coloration which is of a deep red color. The excavations have revealed earthen pots and potsherds, glazed potsherds, earthen bowls, terracotta discs, broken pipes, pieces of terracotta oil-lamps, pieces of bone, broken iron artifacts, iron swords, bronze rings and terracotta animal figures
