Hund Swabi

Hund (Swabi), which was the capital city of Hindu Shahi till 1008 AD and an important city of Gandhara, is now a backward and neglected village of District Swabi, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Hund lies on the west bank of the Indus River (Abbasen, اباسين), about half way between Attock and Tarbela Dam. These days the worth to visit spots of Hund are the river bank and the Hund museum, which display the antiques excavated from Hund ruins.
