Ganeshwar is a village in Neem-Ka-Thana Tehsil (Mandal) in the Sikar District of the Indian state of Rajasthan. Ganeshwar is 7.9 kilometres (4.9 mi) distance from Neem-Ka- Thana town, 66.4 kilometres (41.3 mi) from Sikar city and 83 kilometres (52 mi) from Jaipur. Excavations in the area revealed the remains of a 4,000 year old civilization.

History[edit]

Historian Ratna Chandra Agrawal wrote that Ganeshwar was excavated in 1977. Red pottery was found here with black portraiture. The period was estimated to be 2500–2000 BC. Nearly one thousand pieces of copper were found there.[4] Ganeshwar is located near the copper mines of the Sikar-Jhunjhunu area of the Khetri copper belt in Rajasthan. Excavations revealed copper objects including arrowheads, spearheads, fish hooks, bangles and chisels. With its microliths and other stone tools, Ganeshwar culture can be ascribed to the pre-Harappan period. Ganeshwar mainly supplied copper objects to Harappa.[5]
