Summary

Description
English: Sharda Buddhist University: Sharada Peeth (Urdu: شاردا پیٹھ), located near Sharda in Azad Kashmir , at the de-facto border of India and Pakistan (Line of Control) (LOC), was the famous temple of the goddess Sarasvatī (Sharda) on the banks of Kishenganga River in Pakistan administered Kashmir.[1] Its ruins are near the Line of Control (LOC)[1] between the Indian and Pakistani-controlled portions of the former princely state of Kashmir and Jammu. Shina, Pahari, and Kashmiri languages are mostly spoken in the area. Kashmir was a high established centre of learning of vedantic works until Muslim invaders from central-Asian countries came and destroyed it. Indegenious script of Kashmir is named after the deity Sharada Devi.[2] Kashmir was sometimes called Sharada Desh because of this temple and Sharada was called Kashmira Puravasini (resident of city of Kashmir ).[citation needed]The Kashmiris are highly devoted towards this great deity[1] addressed as Bhagavathy. During their daily worship they often say "Namastey Sharada Devi Kashmir Pur Vasini Tvam Ham Prartheye Nityam Vidya Danam Che De hi mey" meaning Salutations to you, O Sharada, O Goddess, O one who resides in Kashmir. I pray to you daily, please give me the charity of knowledge. The temple was last repaired by Maharaja Gulab Singh of Kashmir.
