Jandol State

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jandol (also called Jandool or Jandul) was a minor Pashtun princely state at the time of the British Raj.[1] It was established circa 1830, with its capital at Barwa (modern Samarbagh). Umra Khan was probably its most prominent ruler. It became a part of the princely state of Dir and later of Pakistan as a result of the integration of the princely states of Pakistan.[2]
