  1. The culture  flourished predominantly in the Mewar region of Rajasthan
  2. Idol worship was a common feature practised in most of the temples during this ancient culture

    Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Answer: [A] 1 Only

Second statement is incorrect because there is no evidence of idol worship either amongst the Ahars or the Harappan. Cow-worship was not known in Ahar practice. The excavations reveal a large number of bull figurines indicating the Ahar people worshipped the bull.
