Rakesh Tiwari, who is State Archelogy director, U.P. has mention in
his paper the site as Lahurdeva too (so basically this is the same
location); about 26 km from Gorakhpur (in the map this is shown as
west); however a February 2006 article in the telegraph (associated
with the finding of rice grains - that mentions it east).However the
article mentions the site to be in the District Sant Kabir
Nagar;which is west to Gorakhpur.
Lake at this site is well studied.
