Santosh and Dr. Manjula B Chincholi
Surapura is rich in ancient cultural traditions as also in historical associations. With its ancient capitals, historic battle-fields and architectural monuments., it attracts the attention of any enlightened visitor and takes him back to those days of the glorious past when kingdoms after kingdoms rose, reigned and decliened over this ancient land. The Taluka provides many attractions not only to the historian, but also to the scholar, pilgrim, archaeologist, geologist and industrialist alike. A brief account of some of the more important places of interest in the Taluka are as the follows.
The place of Surapura is the most historically and compatible in the all respects. In South Asia, megaliths of all kinds are noted, these vary from Menhirs, Rock-cut burial, chamber tomb, dolmens, stone alignment, stone circles and anthropomorphic figures. These are broadly classified into two classes Sepulchral in which memorial stones where mortal remains along with funerary objects are placed and Non-sepulchral including large patterned placement of stones over a wide area, 'non-spepulchral' type is associated with astronomy and cosmology in South Asia and in other parts of the world.
