Mingora, Swat

what should be here?

Madyan is a popular hill station, located at a distance of about 55 km from Mingora, in the Swat District of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. The station is at an elevation of 1,320 m above sea level. Madyan is the paradise of Swat.

There are a lot of embroidered shawls in the Bazars of Madyan. Antique and modern shawls, traditional embroidery, tribal jewellery, carved wood and antique or reproduced coins are sold along the main street. This is the last Swati village, offering interesting two-and three-day walks up to the mountain villages.

The central mosque at Madyan has carved wooden pillars with elegant scroll capitals, and its mud-plastered west wall is covered with relief designs in floral motifs. Both bespeak the Swati's love of decoration.
