Ancient times

Mythology and folklore of Pakistan’s Kalash region has been compared to that of ancient Greece. The Kalasha are a Dardic Indo-Aryan indigenous people residing in the Chitral district of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. They speak the Kalasha language, from the Dardic family and practise a religion which is characterised as a form of animism. The Kalash people’s reputed connection to Alexander the Great is the basis of the famous Rudyard Kipling story The Man who would be King which was later made into a film with the same name in 1975.
