Excavation finds platform of Emperor Ashoka's era

Meerut: A brick platform has been found at the time of digging an old house near a power station in Meerut city of Uttar Pradesh, the country's largest state, which dates back to the Mauryan period. The remaining platform is 29 metres in length, 30 metres in width and 2 metres in height. The brick that is attached to it is 42 cm long, 26 cm wide and 8 cm thick, which is close to the Mauryan emperor Ashoka. The reign of Emperor Ashoka dates back to 269 BC, 232 BC.

In fact, the remains have not been noticed for years in the bustling city of Meerut, although at first glance there was nothing special about it. The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) said that the remains have been identified as a brick platform of the Mauryan period which is more than 2,000 years old. The length of the structure is 29 metres, the width is 30 metres and the height is 2 metres.

At the same time, Brajsundar Gadnayak, Archaeological Survey of India, Meerut Circle, said that the brick found in the platform is 42cm×26cm×8cm in size. He has said that more excavations will be carried out by identifying them here and the possibility of getting some more goods is also complete. He says that the size of the brick found on this platform is close to the Mauryan period of the Ashoka Emperor. However, he said that work is going on and it is too early to speak a little more.
