Khanpur Dam is a dam located on the Haro River in Khanpur, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa about 50 km from Islamabad. It forms Khanpur Lake, a reservoir which supplies drinking water to Islamabad and Rawalpindi and irrigation water to many of the agricultural and industrial areas surrounding the cities.

The dam was completed in 1983 after a 15-year construction period at a cost of ₨1.385 billion. It is 51 m (167 ft) high and stores 79,980 acre-feet (98,650,000 m3) of water.

Archaeological sites

There are several excavated Buddhist archaeological sites nearby that also attract local and foreign tourists.

 

Bhamala Buddhist Complex

Sculptures and heads dating back to second to fifth century AD have been discovered during excavation at Bhamala Buddhist Complex near Khanpur known as Bhamala Stupa. During excavation, precious coins of Kushan period were also found around the stupa. Bhamala archaeological site had been declared national and world heritage site located near Khanpur dam. The ruins dated back to fourth century BC. The stupa is cross-shaped and looks like an Aztec Pyramid.

 

Rajgan Mosque

The deserted Rajgan Mosque, locally known as the "Rajon ki Masjid", is believed to be over 100 years old.[citation needed] It is now only used for Eid prayers, as people use the newly-constructed mosques in the nearby areas for everyday prayers. It has a large prayer hall and a time-worn brick courtyard.
