.

Mansehra Rock Edicts is part of the Tentative list of Pakistan in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

The Mansehra Rock Edicts are fourteen edicts of the Mauryan emperor Ashoka, cut into the surface of three boulders in the city of Mansehra in northern Pakistan. The rock edicts are written in the Kharosthi script and date from the middle of the 3rd century BCE. Mansehra and other preserved rock edicts from the same period are considered the earliest irrefutable evidence of writing in South Asia.
