According to reports, the public will be allowed to observe how archaeologists dig out terracotta figurines of Kushana, Gupta and Sunga periods, copper coins of the Maurya period and antiquities of the Sultanat period.

The excavation at the Old Fort has been going on since January this year to discover the existence of Indraprastha and to showcase evidence of the Mahabharat period.

This is the first time that an excavation site will be open to visitors while the project is still going on.

According to sources, ASI is also considering conserving the earlier excavations at Purana Quila for the visitors. It is planning to build glass pathways on the dug-up trenches. Visitors can walk around and see the artifacts discovered at the site.
