The small but well-preserved stupa at Jinnan Wali Dheri missing its dome (at the hands of ancient looters). The stupa is exquisitely decorated and is a compact version of the larger monuments seen around Taxila and has been recently restored to a large extent via funding from the U.S. Ambassador's Fund for Cultural Preservation. It is dated to approximately 5th century CE.
