Bhita is the place of archaeological importance on the bank of River Yamuna and sprawls over an area of 400 bighas, near the village of the same name. In the south west portion of the village, remains of a rectangular fort have been traced. Excavation of this site in the year 1909-10 & 1910-12 confirm the possibility of the place as a military base and business centre. Terracotta articles, earthenware, seals and a good number of idols were discovered during excavations. However, exhaustive excavation has not yet been taken up which may reveal many more historical facts about the site.
