Udupi, 04 Mar 2013: A mass burial ground dating back to Neolithic age was found Marikote that lies in the hill range of Mahadeshwarabetta, near Hogenakal Falls, stated Professor T Murugeshi, ancient history and archaeological department, MSRS College, Shirva, near here.


 
Professor T Murugesh and Karnataka archaeological department director Dr R Gopal stumbled upon the Neolithic era mass burial ground (20 feet x 40 feet in radius) at Marikote that lies on the right side of Hogenakal Falls, when they had actually gone to list the temples located in the mountain range of Alamabady, on the insistence of Swami Immadi Mahadeva of Saloor Brahanmutt, Male Mahadeshwarabetta.

 

 
 
 
The mass graves are formed in circles underground covered with locally available large slabs.  A few graves were plundered by treasure hunters.  A few opened graves revealed that square compartments were made to lay the mortal remains covered with large slabs.


 
The archaeological find unearthed at Mahadeshwarabetta revealed that there thrived a Neolithic colony over 3,000 years ago.
