Mizo village a site of national l importance

The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has declared Vangchhia village in Mizoram's Champhai district, along the Myanmar border, as a site of national importance. There are 170 stones with ancient carvings at the village, which prompted the ASI to take this decision.

S S Gupta, superintending archaeologist of ASI's Guwahati Circle, who recently visited the site, said all the land records have been obtained and a comprehensive proposal was submitted to Delhi.

"We have never seen this kind of carvings in the northeast region, though similar carvings have been found in central and south India," Gupta said, adding the ASI was eager to conduct a detailed study of the carvings and the site.
