Neglected and Ignored: The Burzahom archaeological site in Kashmir

Located in the Kashmir Valley, the Burzahom archaeological site, has revealed a rich culture of an ancient civilisation, and historical significance.

Excavations at the site have unearthed history of Kashmir from the Neolithic era, and the Megalithic era, and shows the transition from the subterranean and ground level housing features of the Neolithic people to the mudbrick structures of the Megalithic people.

However, today, the site is neglected and has been left to deteriorate.

With locals playing cricket in the vicinity, the authorities have been playing deaf, dumb and mute, to the archaeological site, that can be compared with the Stonehenge site of southern England.
