★ ★Amazing Places Of Swat★ ★

One of the most beautiful valleys of Pakistan, Swat has been populated for over two thousand years. The first occupants at that time created well-planned towns. In 327 BC, Alexander the Great fought his way to Udegram and Barikot and stormed their battlements. Around the 2nd century BC, this very area was occupied by the Buddhists, who were attracted by the peace and calmness of the land. There are many remains that testify to their skills as sculptors and architects. At the end of the Mauryan period (324-185 BC), Buddhism spread in the whole Swat valley, which became a famous center of the religion. The Hindu religion expanded again as Buddhism moved east. By the time of the Muslim invasion (1000 AD), the population was by and large Hindu. The first Muslim arrivals in Swat were Pakhtun Dilazak tribes from south-east Afghanistan. These were later ousted by Swati Pakhtuns. They were succeeded in the sixteenth century by Pakhtuns. Both groups of Pakhtuns came from the Kandahar and Kabul Valley. Swat, generally known as the Switzerland of Asia, is one of the most beautiful valleys in the World. Swat is a place for leisure Lovers, Hikers, and Archeologists. It is garden of Ashoka.
