Swabi

what should be here?

Rani Ghat is a scenic place on top of the mountain, known for its association with the Gandhara civilization. It is said to be used by the Queen of that era as her residence. The Queen used to pay the residents of Swabi for the fresh air coming from Swabi and in return the villagers were bound not to pollute the air by blowing crops in the air for cleaning purposes. These ruins belong to one of the oldest Buddhist temples of Gandhara Civilization. Being a part of origin of Buddhist Gandhara civilization, this archaeological site has also attracted re-construction funds from Japanese research institutes and government. It is believed that this site once served as a university, where many foreigners, including Japanese came here to study Buddhism.
