  • Pectoral of Sithathoryunet with the Name of Senwosret II
This pectoral is composed around the throne name of King Senwosret II. It was found among the jewelry of Princess Sithathoryunet in a special niche of her underground tomb beside the pyramid of Senwosret II at Lahun.Hieroglyphic signs make up the design, and the whole may be read: "The god of the rising sun grants life and dominion over all that the sun encircles for one million one hundred thousand years to King Khakheperre (Senwosret II). Zigzag lines on the base bar represent the primordial waters out of which the primeval hill emerged. Each of the falcons, symbols of the sun god.These snakes represent Nekhbet and Udjo, the traditional protector goddesses of the king. Since the tomb of the princess was beside the pyramid of Senwosret, scholars speculate that she was his daughter. Other items in the tomb bear the name of Amenemhat III, suggesting that the princess lived during the reigns of three of the most powerful rulers of Dynasty 12: Senwosret II, Senwosret III, and Amenemhat III

آویز شاهزاده سیت‌هات‌هوریونت با نام سنوسرت دوم
در کارتوچ آویز اسم سنوسرت دوم آمده است. آویز به همراه جواهرات دیگر در مقبره سیت‌هات‌هوریونت که در کنار هرم سنوسرت دوم قرار دارد پیدا شد. خطوط هیروگلیف میگوید: خدای طلوع خورشید، زندگی ابدی را می‌بخشد  و تمامی قلمرو خورشید را احاطه می‌کند برای میلیون ها، صد هزاران سال، پادشاه خاکهپرره (سنوسرت دوم). خطوط زیگزاگ در آویز سمبل آب‌های آفرینش است. دو عقاب نمایانگر خدای خورشید است. مار‌ها خدایان نخبت و اوجو خدایان محافظ پادشاه هستند. چون مقبره شاهزاده در کنار هرم سنوسرت دوم قرار داشت، بعضی محققان او را دخترش می‌دانستند. اما برخی از اشیاء داخل مقبره اسم آمنم‌هات سوم را داشتند به همین خاطر امروزه نظر به این است که شاهزاده در دوره سه پادشاه بزرگ سلسله دوازدهم، سنوسرت دوم، سنوسرت سوم و آمنن‌هات سوم زندگی میکرد

  • The Balaji, a famous and rare sun temple with its own unique architecture. The Balaji temple was built in the pre-historic time by the king of Datia.

The Sun God stands on a brick platform covered with black plates. Twenty-one triangles, representing the 21 phases of the Sun are engraved in the shrine. Here, special worship is offered on Sundays. Local belief is that worshippers find relief from skin ailments at this temple.

It is said that a cow used to go to a particular place to graze in the outskirts of Unao. The cow every day pours her milk at that particular place. The cow belonged to a person of the "Kachhi", (the people of this caste generally used to grow vegetables). The owner of cow was not aware of this incident. Once a person of Lodhi caste saw that the cow is pouring her milk on the earth. The people of this cast have the occupation of assassinating cows. He immediately grabbed the opportunity and assassinated the cow. On the following night, The sun deity came in the dreams of the king of Datia and told the king to dig him out from the location, where the cow used to pour her milk. Next morning, King called his boys and dug out the place and found a statue of the sun. He built a temple in Unao and established the statue on a brick platform, and as said by the sun, the owner of that cow has been assigned the priest. Since then only people belonging to "Kachhi" caste can only sit at the brick platform and offer garlands, prasadas to the deity. Elsewhere in India, only a person belonging to Brahmin caste can offer worship. The pilgrims and pandas(people belong to Brahmin caste)also take part in the worship of the deity but the main priest is said to be "Kachhi" caste people.
