Also called Ucha Pind (high village) because it rests on a mound, Sanghol finds mention in the 7th century writings of Hiuen Tsang, the Chinese traveller. These discoveries at Sanghol have helped establish the existence of a distinct school of art in Punjab in ancient times, and also thrown light on the rich Buddhist settlements that existed in the region. The Archaeological Site Museum here displays a vast range of ancient and medieval heritage.

    The Aam Khas Bagh (literally, garden of the ordinary and privileged) is the most visible reminder of Sirhind's glorious past. A complex of palaces and gardens, it was used as a resting place by a succession of Mughal emperors and designed and renovated by many amongst them. It is most popularly associated with the reigns of Jahangir and Shah Jahan, but it was first laid by the revenue collector of Sirhind during Akbar's rule. The walled garden was originally divided into two parts, the aam for the public and the khas for the royal family. Among the buildings is the Sard Khana built by Jahangir, kept cool by water channels flowing through its walls. He also built the tile-embellished Sheesh Mahal and the Hamam with its underground waterways. The palace, now in ruins, is attributed to Shah Jahan3

The museum, located in Sanghol village displays a vast range of heritage, from Harappan pottery and jewellery to artefacts from the Maurya, Sunga and Gupta dynasties. Excavations suggest it was a Buddhist site during Kushana rule as two monasteries and a stupa from the period have been uncovered here. A seal inscribed with the name of the 5th century Huna ruler of Sanghol, who may have destroyed the Buddhist settlement, was also recovered.

    Among the 15,000 exhibits displayed are objects of terracotta and ivory, collections of coins, carvings and precious stones. There are over 70 artefacts from the Gupta period, including human, animal and bird figurines and a 4th century red sandstone head of the Buddha.
