TypeBrahmanical Temple

Khair Khaneh is an archaeological site located near Kabul, Afghanistan. A Brahmanical Temple was excavated there in the 1930s by Joseph Hackin. The construction of the Khair Khaneh temple itself is dated to 608-630 CE, at the beginning of the Turk Shahis period.[5] Most of the remains, including marble statuettes, date to the 7th–8th century, during the time of the Turk Shahi.[6][7][8]
