Photographer's Note

Situated in the Chakwal District in the Salt Ranges, this temple was built somewhere around 980 AD. It is one of 10 or more temples situated in the salt ranges.

It was first found in 1848 by Gen. Cunnigham. The temple is where the the Potohar plateau starts, and looking eastwards one gets a panoramic view of the Jehlum plain and the Lahore-Islamabad motorway. Perched a top a cliff, 3-sides are a sheer drop.

Built with red stones from the salt ranges, the temples are in bad shape, mainly due to neglect, and operations of cement factories around it.
