Malaysia: A team of 30 Malaysian researchers carried out a seminal study of the 2000-year-old Gandhara civilization in Peshawar. The research team visited Peshawar and mapped the famous Kashmir Smast site besides studying its early civilization, prehistory and reconstruction of the palaeoenvironment there.

The team did a complete magnetic anomaly mapping of the Kashmir Smast Cave (Great Cave), Kashmir Smast monastery, spring water tank and great water tank to identify their future research potential. During the mapping exercises, the team made two discoveries of Gandhara stone tools inside the University of Peshawat campus and an ”adze” stone tool at the Kashmir Smast site. The results of the preliminary studies prove the importance of Kashmir Smast in the prehistoric period and early civilisation.
