Buddhist archaeological sites
Once part of the Gandhara civilization, Swabi contains many important archaeological sites, which are tourist attractions. Alexander the Great crossed the Indus River where the village of Hund now lies on its right bank. Hund was the capital of the Hindu Shahi for nearly three hundred years.
Aurel Stein recorded in his survey of the Mahaban range "it remains for me to explain the opinion to which I have been led as regards the character and identity of this remarkable site. The nature of the ruins described and the remains they have furnished, makes it clear beyond all doubt; that they mark the position of a Buddhist sanctuary possessed of shrines and monastic establishments."[better source needed]
