Historical Bhamala Village, Khanpur
More than 500 priceless ancient artifacts are uncovered from this village including a Maha Puri Nirvana (death of Buddha) statue measuring 14 meters in length. The history of this village can be traced back to 2,000 years. Some of the main discoveries were found to be damaged due to earlier illegal excavation. “The most remarkable discovery from Bhamala was the Maha Puri Nirvana statue. It is the largest such example found in the Gandhara civilization,” said Mr. Paveez & Mr. Waqar (Owners of Gandhara Castle Resort).
