Abstract

Gor Khatri is an archeological site, located at the heart of the walled city of Peshawar. A square-shaped compound, having a rich and diverse history of subjugation during various historic eras, has gone through a series of excavations unraveling many facts on the civilizations' culture and traditions that had once occupied the land. The purpose of this report is to provide a brief on the historic relevance; excavations held on-site with a timeline and a proposal for its adaptive reuse. The methodology adopted is based on secondary data based on the historic events formulating a proposal for the site's future development for users of the areas as a historic milestone, not losing its rich history. The research indicates a possibility of adaptive reuse of some of the complex spaces that could be converted into a public library and guest houses under the government care for prospects as it is facing the New developed Trail that is one attraction of the site. The research attempts to document the Archeology Department's efforts to develop action plans for the Gor Kathree Complex.
