These statues belong to Sun god, Lord Ganesh and Shiv Linga and were found uncared in open paddy fields near Pithoria some 30 kms away from Ranchi the capital of Jharkhand State of India. According to historians these statues belong to 1st century AD. Villagers regularly perform prayers and this is the only cause that still today these statues are not stolen. Few parts of the statues are broken. This is not the only spot which is uncared; there are lots of historical spots in Jharkhand State which needs immediate attention by the State Government.
