Takht Bhai

 

 

 

Takht-I-Bakh”Throne of the water spring”), generally misspoke as Takht-I-Bhai “Sibling’s position of royalty”), is an Indo-Parthian archeological site of an antiquated Buddhist religious community in Mardan, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. The site is considered among the most monumental relics of Buddhism in all of Gandhara, and has been “particularly very much protected.”

The Buddhist religious community was established in the first century CE,and was being used until the seventh century. The complex is viewed by archeologists as being especially illustrative of the engineering of Buddhist devout focuses from its time. Takht-I-Bahi was recorded as an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1980.
