The temple is believed to belong to deity Vishnu which is 1300 years old. The temple was built during the Hindu Sahi period (850- 1026CE) whose dynasty was spread across Kabul valley, Gandhara and a part of Northwest india. During the excavation, Fazle Khaliq of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Department of Archaeology found traces of watch towers, cantonments and water tanks which served for bathing before worshipping the deity.
