Alexander Cunningham[1] writes that The ancient town of Kahror is situated on the southern bank of the old Bias river, 50 miles to the south-east of Multan, and 20 miles to the north-east of Bahawalpur. It is mentioned as one of the towns which submitted to Chach[2] after the capture of Multan in the middle of the seventh century. But the interest attached to Kahror rests on its fame as the scene of the great battle between Vikramaditya and the Sakas, in A.D. 79. Abu Rihan describes its position as situated between Multan and the castle of Loni. The latter place is most probably intended for Ludhan, an ancient town situated near the old bed of the Satlej river, 44 miles to the east-north-east of Kahror, and 70 miles to the east-south-east of Multan. Its position is therefore very nearly halfway between Multan and Ludhan, as described by Abu Rihan.
