Abba Sahib Cheena


Abba Sahib Cheena:

    Abba Sahib Cheena is located approximately 6 kilometres from Barikot on Barikot-Buner road. One must take a right turn a little off the Najigram village road, leading to the shrine of Mashoom Shaheed to reach the Site.Here, a water stream descending from Mount Sur-Ghar leads right into the Mandara nullah.

    As it continues, the valley narrows within the steep mountains slope, partly covered by pine tree (unfortunately now sparse as many have been felled). This led to the central zone of the great monumental Buddhist complex of Abba Sahib Cheena dating back to 1st Century A.D. The site contains four main stupa, numerous votive stupas, chapels and monastic complex.
