Chapter Summary

Early medieval temples in the Khisor range of hills along the west bank of the Indus River in the North-West Frontier Province and those on the escarpments and plateau of the Salt Range, between the Indus and Jhelum rivers on the southern edge of the Pothohar table- land in the western Punjab, were visited by Alexander Cunningham in the mid second half of the nineteenth century and again by Aurel Stein at the beginning of the twentieth century. Referring specifically to temples at the sites of Amb, Malot, and Katās, Cunningham drew the conclusion that these "temples of the Salt Range may be assigned with much probability to the latter half of the 9th century," in part on the basis of their use of "spiral twisted pillars" not found on most of the temples under discussion.
