The mounds at Bhita, situated 35 miles downstream from Kausambi on the bank of the Yamuna, represent the ruins of an ancient city which flourished during the Mauryan time to Gupta period. The excavations were conducted by Sir John Marshall (1909-1910 and 1911-12) at Bhita. The most important finds suggesting the Kushan occupation of this city are a number of seals and sealings inscribed in the Kushan character and the coins belonging to this dynasty. Some seals with scripts in the Kushan character were also found during the course of excavation.
