The common perception about Swat valley among tourists is its natural beauty but Swat has a history of its own which dates back to the 2nd & 3rd centuries AD.
Swat was a major centre of early Buddhist thought as part of the Gandhara civilization, and today is littered with ruins and monuments from that era. Swat was home to the last isolated pockets of Gandharan Buddhism, which lasted until the 10th century and was ruled by the Hindu Shahi dynasty, which built an extensive array of temples and other architectural buildings, now in ruins.
