Sath Graha or Seven Temples in the background with ruins of the Buddhist era stupa in the fore. The Temples date to the Hindu Shahi period (615-950 CE) and the Stupa is from the Asokan period at its earliest as described by Cunningham but various details that he has mentioned from the 1800s as being extant on the stupa have now disappeared, looted or generally disintegrated. Some late period out-buildings can be seen between the temples and the stupa which date from the Sikh and later British era.
