Archaeological site, Sirpur, which is considered to be the ancient capital of South Kosal, 85 kilometers away from the capital Raipur, is the largest Buddhist site ever known in India. This site is larger than Nalanda's Buddhist site. Apart from the rigorous evidence of teaching 10 Buddhist monasteries and 10,000 Buddhist monks here, there is evidence of Buddhist stupa and Buddhist scholar Nagarjuna coming to Sirpur. Arun Kumar Sharma, Archaeological Advisor of Chhattisgarh, excavated on the basis of the travelogue of Wayansang, has found all the specialties mentioned in the travelogue in the excavation of Sirpur.
It is noteworthy that after 6th century Chinese traveler, Weinsang, while referring to the capital of South Kosala, there was a hundred Sangrams where there is talk of the coming of Lord Tathav Buddha and there is a Hindu king, there was a samadhi of all the religions. At this place, Buddhist scholar Nagarjuna resided in a cave. The Mahanadi in Sirpur turns into angle and according to the ancient architect Mayamat (Ravan's father-in-law, Maidanov), where the river turns into the northeast, the god resides.
