General John Jacob, the acting British Commissioner in Sindh was first to be attracted to the site in the 19th century. His excavations found a vase of fine earthenware containing some pieces of crystal and amethyst, which was sent to the Karachi Museum. The stupa was decorated using terracotta sculptures representing the Buddha.> The artwork is similar to that seen at Sarnath and at Mathura. Clay tablets containing the Buddhist formula "Ye Dharma Hetu" in 7th-8th script were also found.
The stupa is now said to be in a poor condition. The bricks have been taken away causing deliberate destruction.
