Status of site at time of survey :
There are foundations of four temples, two storage houses, a kitchen, and 5-6 gers onthe site. It is probable that the gers were used for storage. Some long houses surrounded by a ruined fence/wall lie on the side of the site. Again it is probable that these were the residences for the monks. The temples all have blue brick foundations.
