  • A majestic city of the ancient times. needs more care and preservation, restoration of the excavated sites. Aimed research and excavation is needed to bring more of glorious history of the city and its suburbs. There must be more than we have and can see now. A place to visit during morning or afternoon. Scorching sun will make the visit difficult as almost no shades or trees inside the ruins
