Pachrahi Gold Coin

The excavations at Pachrahi, district Kabirdham, Chhattisgarh opened many hidden treasures in the Indian archaeology and history. The excavation revealed more than 8 temples, big royal palaces, more than 200 coins of gold, silver and copper coins. The outstanding discoveries are the fossils of 15 crore years old and a large prehistoric site.

The outstanding discovery is the finding of gold coins of Ganga period of Odisha.Gangas were the mighty dynasty of Odisha in the medieval period. In this dynasty one king Chodaganga dev has been considered to be the most powerful king of his time in eastern Inida.By erecting the Jagannatha temple and by increasing the importance of this famous shrine he also earned immortal fame in Orissan history.

During his time he attempted to enlarged his empire in all the directions. So he attempted to occupy the some portion of South Kosala area(Chhattisgarh area).But by that time this South Kosala area had been occupied by  the Kalachuris of Ratanpura.So he waged a war against the Kalachuri king Ratan dev II(AD1120-1135). But the result of the war is not clear.

Howevere the findings of gold coins of this dynasty in the south kosala area  or Chhattisgarh area ,clearly indicates that there was some sort of political or cultural or trade relation between the Kalinga country and south kosala area.

Note: For the first time the gold coins of Ganga dynasty have been found in this area which shows the cultural, political, and trade relation between two states during that period.

  1. Young historians should undertake such projects for research work in Universities. During vacations people should visit such places at least.

    Thanks for the posting this article. I could not understand the timing of the event. In the initial paragraph it was mentioned 15crore years old. Later you mentioned ~1100AD. Kindly give us more clarification and more details of the excavation.

    • Sri Aditya, thanks a lot for going through the report very meticulously.

      You have certainly noticed that the excavations revealed the ‘fossils’ dated back a presumed 15 crores year old. On that pre-historic and very primitive part of the site a new civilization revived again at 1100 AD at the time of King Ratan Dev II in Kalachuri Dynasty as a recycling process of Indic Civilization actually ‘Bharatiya Sabhyata’. In this span, perhaps so many civilizations on that point and part got perished in the informidable and unrevealed time, even earlier 1100 AD.

      This is so natural to deal with the History of Bharatvarsa ranges the biggest span to guess.

      We have some details of it, but cannot be published due to some copyright restrictions.

      If you are so interested, please contact with Dr. S. Kalyanraman at kalyan97@gmail.com .

      Thank for viewing and keep good watching.

      Regards.
