Taxila Off The Beaten Path: 7 reviews and 26 photos
Mohra Moradu is a Buddhist complex, consisting of two parts: in the west, a stupa (venerated tomb), and in the east, a monastery. The latter is situated between two hill spurs. The drive towards this site goes through various orchids, farms, and over several dried springs.
The monastery was built in the second century and extensively renovated in the fifth century. Monasteries in Gandara and the Punjab usually had 27 cells, which surrounded a rectangular central court with a bathroom an assembly hall, a well, a store-room, a kitchen,a refectory, and a latrine. The monastery looks a lot like the one at Jaulian.
The stupa in the museum is the replica of the original which can be viewed at this site. The original is kept behind closed a glass wall, and may be opened by the guard.
