After his notice, Skardu was rapidly drawn into Asian maps delivered in Europe, and was first referenced as Eskerdow the guide “Indiae orientalis nec non insularum adiacentium nova descriptio” by Dutch etcher Nicolaes Visscher II, distributed between 1680–1700.


The Skardu district was a piece of the social circle of Buddhist Tibet since the establishing of the Tibetan Empire under Songsten Gampo in the mid seventh century CE. Tibetan tantric sacred texts were discovered all over Baltistan until about the ninth century. Given the area’s closeness to Central Asia, Skardu stayed in contact with clans close Kashgar, in what is presently China’s westernmost region of Xinjiang.

Following the disintegration of Tibetan suzerainty over Baltistan around the ninth tenth century CE, Baltistan went under control of the nearby Maqpon Dynasty, an administration of Turkic extraction, which as per neighborhood custom, is said to have been established after a vagrant from Kashmir named Ibrahim Shah wedded a nearby princess.
