Excavations carried out on the site put at the day the ruins of large a Stûpa , of a diameter of 40 m and which were to culminate with more than 10 m, most probably former to the reign of Ashoka. The exploration of the stupa revealed a stone trunk containing various invaluable objects whose vase in Stéatite comprising the inscription “This tomb intended for ashes of the Buddha, waked up, is the pious work of Śākya, his/her brothers, related to their sisters, and their children, and their wives. ” in pre-Ashoka characters, perhaps oldest found in India.
The ruins which were released around the stupa are probably those of Kapilavastu, the birthplace of the Bouddha.
