PALANPUR: Archaeological Survey of Gujarat hopes to find remains of centuries old civilization that may have once thrived at Vadali near Patan in north Gujarat. "A four member team will begin excavation at the site from Monday. The excavation work would continue for at least three months," superintending archaeologist Hitesh Shah said.

"Earlier, we had found a small Buddhist Vihara (monastery) at Vadnagar. During our work here I found enough clues that suggested that the site had many ancient monuments," Shah added.
