The soonest antiquities of Halin—city's wooden doors—are radiocarbon dated to 70 CE. The city was rectangular however with bended corners, and block walled. Exhumed dividers are roughly 3.2 km long on the north-south hub and 1.6 km on the east-west. At 664 hectares, the city was almost double the span of Beikthano.

This outline of the city impacted the city arranging of later Burmese urban communities and the Siamese city of Sukhothai. For instance, the quantity of entryways and design was likewise found in ensuing real Burmese capitals, for example, the eleventh century Pagan and nineteenth century Mandalay. The city's setup was additionally found at other contemporary urban communities, for example, Maingmaw and Beikthano in the Pyu domain and Danyawaddy and Wethali in Arakan and also later urban areas, for example, Sukhothai, which developed over a thousand years after the fact. Auxiliary stays of sanctuaries at Halin demonstrate that the plan of city's sanctuaries affected the eleventh to thirteenth century sanctuaries at Pagan. Exhumed relics indicate Halin's Pyu script to be the most punctual writing in the Pyu domain (and in Burma). It depended on a before adaptation of the Brahmi script (Mauryan and Guptan). Engravings at Sri Ksetra demonstrate a later form of the same script.

Known for the generation of salt, an exceedingly prized ware in the primary thousand years, Halin was superseded by Sri Ksetra as the chief Pyu city-state around seventh century. By the Chinese records, Halin remained a vital Pyu focus until the ninth century when the Pyu domain went under rehashed assaults from the Nanzhao Kingdom. The Chinese records express that the city was annihilated by the Nanzhao warriors in 832 CE, with 3000 of its occupants taken away. Nonetheless, radiocarbon dating uncovers human action to around 870 CE, almost four decades after the revealed sack of the city.
