Sanghol is a village located in Fatehgarh Sahib District [ (F.G.S.) ] of Punjab. It is also known as Uchha Pind Sanghol. It is about 40 km from Chandigarh on the way to Ludhiana and approximately 10 KM from Dholewal. This place holds a special position on the archeological atlas of India. Excavations at the site have yielded coins and seals related to Toramana and Mahiragula belonging to central Asia. A Buddhist stupa was excavated in 1968, but in February 1985 a rich treasure of 117 beautiful caryed stone slabs, pillars, crossbars, figures and figurines were excavated by the experts of the Directorate of Archaeology, Punjab. Scholars have explained them as Kushan sculptures of the Mathura school of the 1st and 2nd centuries A.D. These treasures have since been displayed for art lovers and historians in Sanghol Museum.

Situated on the top of a mound, Ucha Pind Sanghol is spread over an area of 200 km. It is famed for the Sanghol Museum. A large of number of relics dating from the late Harappan civilization (1720BC - 1300BC) to 6th century AD is found here.
