The widely-criticized Unnao gold search by the Archaeological Survey of India has come to an end. The digging work was stopped at the fort of Raja Rao Ram Bux Singh in Unnao. Excavations have confirmed that there was no gold at the fort, though some pottery pieces from Buddhist era have been discovered from the site.

 

 

 

The excavation had begun on October 18 after a seer, Shobhan Sarkar, had dreamt of 1,000 tonnes of gold lying buried under the ruins of the 19th century fort.
