The Excavated Remains at Paharpur are highly important in Bangladesh. These represent the largest known Buddhist Monastery South of the Himalayas. The Gradual Deposotion of wind blow dust over these ruins for ages took the shape of a high mound or a hill. Hence the name of the place has probably become Paharpur. Excavations conducted here from 1923 to 1934 yielded a huge number of antiquities including one inscribed copper plate of Gupta (479 AD), Stone Inscriptions, Stone and Bronze Sculptures, Terracotta, Plaques, Inscribed Clay Sealings, Ornamental Bricks, Metal Objects, Different Earthen Objects and Silver Coins.
