Pakki Kuti

Pakki Kuti is one of the largest mounds found in Mahet area. It has been identified as remains of stupa of Angulimala as referred by famous Chinese traveller Fa-hien & Hiuen Tsang & also by Cunningham while some other scholars relate it to the ruins of ‘Hall of Law’, supposed to have been built by Prasenjit in honour of Lord Buddha. The structure has undergone a number of subsequent alterations and additions. It appears to be a terraced stupa built on rectangular plan. The supports and drains were provided to the structure as a preventive measure during the time of excavation. The general layout of the structural remains represents constructional activities of different periods, of which earliest may be assigned to Kushana Period.
