Antiquities dating to the 9th century -- including objects dedicated to Buddhism, Jainism and Hinduism -- were excavated in Jharkhand, India. Aside from religious objects, archaeologists from the Archaeological Survey of India also found semi-precious stones, terracotta and metals used as toys, ornaments, ritualistic objects and household objects at the site. But the most interesting finds were sculptures of Buddha, Medhi, and Votive Stupa as well as two fragments of deity made from granite stone, said N.G Nikoshey, the group's superintending archaeologist.
