The Lord Vishnu temple is believed to have been built 1,300 years ago during the Hindu Shahi period. The Hindu Shahi dynasty, also called Kabul Shahis, (850-1026 CE) ruled over a region comprising today's Afghanistan, Pakistan and northern India.

ISLAMABAD, Nov 21: A Hindu temple has been discovered in Swat district in Pakistan's north-west by a group of Pakistani and Italian archaeological experts.

The discovery was announced on Thursday by excavation team at Barikot Ghundai. The Lord Vishnu temple is believed to be 1,300 years old and was built during the Hindu Shahi period.

Fazle Khaliq of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Department of Archaeology said that the temple discovered is of Lord Vishnu. He said it was built by the Hindus 1,300 years ago during the Hindu Shahi period, news agencies reported.

A water tank was also found near the temple site which the experts believe was being used by the Hindus for bathing before worshipping at the temple.

The Hindu Shahis or Kabul Shahis (850-1026 CE) was a Hindu dynasty that ruled the Kabul Valley (eastern Afghanistan), Gandhara (modern-day Pakistan) and the present-day north- western India.

Traces of Buddhist civilisation were also found in Swat, according to Dr Luka, head of the Italian archaeological mission.
