“Although archaeology department has taken over the ancestral graveyard and the palace of Durrani princes, who ruled Kohat from the 19th century to 20th century, these historical sites are still among the most neglected ones in the region. The Durrani rulers of Kohat, Prince Sir Sultan Jan Sadozai and his father King Jamhoor (who was given Star of India posthumously), lie buried in Shahpur village about two kilometres away from Kohat city… The Durranis came to Kohat after the death of King of Afghanistan Shah Shujaa in 1842 during fighting with the rebels.”
