Bhavabhuti himself mentioned this fact in the prologue of these plays.
The noted historian and archeologist Dr.V.V.Mirashi,in his book titled `Bhavabhuti and Kalpriyanath in Bhavabhutis Plays, has proved that once a huge sun temple did exist in Kalpi where people from far off places came to visit and where Bhavabhutis plays were first enacted.
