Tala was discovered by J.D.Welger, an assistant to the well-known archaeologist Alexander Cunningham in1873-74. Historians have claimed that the Tala village
dates back to the 7-8th century AD.
Located near Tala is the Sargaon Village that boasts of the Dhoom Nath Temple.Tala is a land of precious archaeological excavations that have revealed
excellent sculpture work.These exquisite excavations narrate the prosperity of Tala during the 6th to 10th century AD. However, the various excavated ruins obtained and the
sculpture-style tell us the various dynasties that reigned Tala were Lord Shiva’s devotees and propagators of the Shiva religion. Perhaps, that is why, even
today Shiva devotees flock to the temples here in order to perform various rituals and chant the holy Mahamrityunjay Mantra. Lord Shiva’s devotees offer their
prayers here and also love to visit other excavations. Tala is also home to various temples which include the Ram-Janaki Temple, the Swami Purnanand Mahajan Temple
