Dating back to the Sangam era (Before Christ), Keezhadi is home to mysteries. It played a vital role in discovering the ancient Tamil culture and its origin. The first round of excavation began in 2015 and has continued till now. Skulls, pots, jewelry, expensive metal coins, Tamil — Brahmi scripts, and graffiti marks were found and sent to the archaeological laboratory in Florida for carbon dating.

The research has recently provided hints about the links between south civilization and the Indus valley civilization, which is a thriller amidst the unveiling of treasures. As the study enters its deep phase, the Tamil Nadu high court plans on expanding the excavation site.
