There are some beautiful museums in the world which attract millions of visitors. The region of Mardan is rich in culture and especially Gandhara remains are matchless. The people of Mardan had the idea of a museum for a long time and they were keen to preserve the heritage. For this reason they formed National Heritage Preservation Societies in the past. Ultimately with the interest of the local Government Officials and the then commissioner of Mardan, Mr R N Sahibzada, the proposal of building a museum in Mardan was made in 1990. The museum was opened in April1991.

The original name is Takht-i-Bahi. This town is situated 15 km from Mardan on Swat Malakand road. In 1908/9 the ancient Buddhist history was discovered in the mountains. Large numbers of buildings look beautiful on top of the mountains.

Unfortunately the possessions of the houses and buildings have been taken away illegally and maybe decorating some famous buildings in the rest of the world. The population is expanding and new houses are approaching the site. If ignored for a few more years, the tourist and historic attractions will disappear.

Cultural heritage has a great historical significance. It represents the taste and theme of the time. The Guides Memorial Mardan also has a very relevant historical importance. It was built by the British in 1892 in memory of their soldiers who sacrificed their lives in defence of Queen’s Residency in Kabul on September 23rd 1879.This historical memorial was built in the centre of Mardan city.

Rustam Hospital

Rustam is a historical village and is situated about 20 miles from Mardan. It has a small hospital which is situated at a very scenic location. The hospital was built for a small population which has significantly grown now.
There are quite a few doctors from Rustam who are working in different parts of the world but a couple of them have worked hard to bring some good changes in the hospital. Amongst these are Dr Zahir Shah and the ex Health secretary Dr Ali Sher Khan.
A few years ago an NGO tried to set up a health project in Rustam Hospital with the help of th World Bank but it did not materialise as there was so much bureaucracy involved in the process. And the funds were never released from Islamabad.
The hospital has the potential to treat a large number of patients which in turn will reduce work load on hospitals like Mardan and Peshawar. But it needs the attention of the provincial health authorities. The people of Rustam feel their hospital has been neglected in the recent past.
