One Day Trip of Takht-i-Bahi, Mardan | PakAdventureClub
Hello Friends, come and join this one day trip of archaeological historical site Takht-i-Bahi, Mardan with PakAdventureClub, and have a memorable weekend.
~~~!i!i!i!i—–… INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND HISTORY …!i!i!i!i —–~~~
Takht-i-Bhai (also spelled Takht Bahi, Takht Bhai or Takh Bay) is a Parthian archaeological site in Mardan, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. It was first a Zoroastrian complex which, after the later arrival of Buddhism, was then converted into a Buddhist monastic complex. It is dated to the 1st century BCE. The complex is regarded by archaeologists as being particularly representative of the architecture of Buddhist monastic centers from its era. It was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1980.
The ruins are located about 15 kilometers from Mardan in Pakistan’s Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Province. A small fortified city, dating from the same era, sits nearby. The ruins also sit near a modern village known by the same name. It is located around 500 feet atop the small hill and around 2 km from village bazar. The surrounding area is famous for sugar cane, wheat, maize, vegetable, and orchard cultivation.
The villages of Thordher (Old name Said Ghani Kalae), Ghafe, Lund Khwar, Sher Garh, Saroo Shah, Sehri-Bahlol, Pathai, Mazdoorabad, Fazl-e-abad, Gangai, Hathian, Jalala,Pirsaddi and Takkar are other historical places in the vicinity of Takht-Bhai. The most historical location in the era is Sehri Bahlol. This Buddhist monastery is situated on Malakand Road. The word “Sehri-Bahlol” has been explained by various people in different ways. Local people claim that this is a Hindko word meaning “Sir Bahlol”, a prominent political and religious leader of the area. However, the name is not as old as the village of Sehri-Bahlol. Meager economic conditions, poor educational facilities, and the nefarious effect of dealers of antiquities often result in severe hazard for the proper preservation of archaeological heritage in minor, less controlled sites. Sardar Ali Takkar, a well known Pashto singer, was born in the village of Takkar, similarly, Hussain ahmad sadiq, a prominent pashto language poet, was also born in Mazdoorabad, the village of takht bhai.
