GVEI 11th class Arts Students today visited Harwan Ancient Buddhist Monastery to collect the information about the ancient people and Maharaja Kanishka's works.
The site was developed around 6th century BCE (Kashmiri name is Hari Chandraz) in the past. The main purpose of the settlement was to pacify the Buddhists. For the same purpose, Marahaja Kanishka invited
12 great saints of Buddhism of that time to settle the disputes between the four sections of Buddhism and to unite them.
Then the students trekked to Shalkhud Astanmarag to talk to
the people of different tribes living in that area so as to familiarise with their living conditions.
