Picture of the Week #91 - Pandeshwar Temple, Hastinapur (1500 B.C.)

The current structure of the temple was constructed in the 18th Century but it is widely believed to have been 'originally' constructed by the Pandavas (from the epic Mahabharata) in their capital city of Hastinapur, the compound of this temple had been excavated by Archaeologist Mr Lal (from the ASI) in the 1950's to look for remains from the times of the Vedic Age. He was successful in unearthing greyware pottery which, upon carbon dating, was found to date back to 1500 B.C.
