Archaeologists have claimed that the Wari-Bateshwar was in the kingdom of ancient Gangaridas.

A large number of metallic, low-cost stones and glass-topped ornaments carry the identity of a city civilization.

Religious nature of Wari-Bateswar archaeological site is not known. However, the newly acquired pottery at the site is indicative of Buddhist culture in this region. Dilip Kumar Chakraborty (professor, South Asian Archeology, Cambridge University) thinks that there was communication between Wari-Bateshwar and Southeast Asia and the Roman Empire. Due to the fact that the rusty wreath, sandwich glass beads, gold covered glass beads, tin mixed bronze, etc., all the facts prove this information authentic. According to Gordon Child, the Wari-Bateshwar region is called 'Sonagara', which is referred to as Ptolemy (second century geographer). Because in the Pacific, single-color glass beads were found in Wari-Bateshwar, Sri Lanka's standards, Arikamadu of South India, Kyon Tham in Thailand, etc. Recent brick installations have been found in archaeological excavation in Wari-Bateshwar, which support Gordon Child's urbanization. As a result of the excavation, 160 meters of roads along the lane have been discovered. Experts agree that not only urbanization occurred in Wari Bateshwar, due to the presence of the Brahmaputra, the region was also a river and commercial city.
