Khingar is just a small village to the west of Jharkot with nothing much of
interest other than a settlement mound where Germans carried out an excavation
and tried to come up with an answer to the history of the place. To this day
you can see the site near the roadside. Some of the pottery samples collected
were similar in characteristics to those that were found in the cave systems
nearby. It is also speculated that this place is connected with a place once
known as Khalong. The ruins that you see today was a castle-like residence of
a local chief famously known even today as the master of 100 horses.
Basically, the number of horses you owned signified your power status and the
chief certainly had his fair share of power. If you get to Khingar then do see
this settlement mound. Other than that there is nothing much here.
