The city of Sirsukh is close to this monastery, about 1.5 km away. This place belonged to the Kushan era and was built in the second century AD and then refurbished in the fifth century.

The Kushan Empire was founded in the first year of South Asia in the first century AD when it was the reign of Prince Khusan Kujula Kadphises.

The second city of Taxila is known as Sirkip, which was founded by the king of bacteria Dimitrios, Dimitrios, in 180 BC. The area was invaded in the 18th century and rebuilt by Menander. The shelter of Taxila reflects the multicultural nature of the Greek kingdom of India, including not only Punjab but also Gandhara (aka Kabul and Swat Valley), part of the Archaic and the Ganges Valley.

The main road in Sirkap is a straight line that divides the 1,200-meter-long town into two halves. Private homes are built from rubble buildings with lime or clay stickers. Usually, they have a small playground, a second floor and a flat roof. In India, after the earthquake between the winter and the Persian Indian period, many houses were rebuilt, the walls were stronger, and the foundations were deeper.

Taxila Tour for one day

Julian University

The Julian monastery and university are located away from the hustle and bustle of the city of Taxila-Sirsukh, on a cool, dusty mountain top, about 100 meters above the surrounding country. Julian is no different from Mohra Morado’s settlements, and Mora Morado is only over one kilometre away.

At the end of the fifth century, after the invasion of the White Huns, the settlements recovered shortly before they were abandoned. Therefore, these patterns are better preserved than Mohra Moradu’s patterns, but unfortunately, they are of poor quality. The main stupa was badly damaged, but it was surrounded by twenty-one beautifully decorated Buddhist pagodas. The monastery was restored after the invasion of the White Huns and was used about 530 years later, but it is not clear when it was abandoned.
