A view of the monastery at the complex at Jinnan Wali Dheri dating to 5th Cent CE. The name literally means "The Mound of Demons" and is a modern name given due to the number of human skeletons that would emerge before excavation from the buried site which gave it a reputation for being the haunt of demons by the locals.

It is a smaller site as compared to others but due to its small size has been very well preserved and conserved recently with funding from the U.S. Ambassador's Fund for Cultural Preservation
