Fort Derawar


Derawar Fort is a large square fortress in Pakistan in Bahawalpur. The forty bastions of Derawar are visible for many miles in Cholistan Desert

The first fort on the site was built by Hindu Rajput, Rai Jajja BhatiIt remained in the hands of the royal family of Jaisalmer until captured by the Nawabs of Bahawalpur in 1733. The area is rich in archaeological artifacts associated with Ganweriwala, a vast but as-yet-unexcavated city of the Indus Valley Civilization.

Noor Mehal


 

Approximately 1 and a half hours’ drive from multan  will lead you into Bahawalpur.
Last saturday I had the pleasure of getting to know about Bahawalpur.

Places I went to:

Noor Mehal
Fort Derrawar
Dera Nawab

 

Noor mehal is usually off limits at night to the civilians… Guess I should consider myself lucky to dine in that beautiful palace.

PS: Its not located in Multan but I want to keep a record of places I went to while residing in multan… Thats why categorized so.

I love horses = I love polo :)


Multan has proved itself a city worth living in. When I first moved here, I felt very confined but now I take a walk in the beautiful Polo ground and admire nature.   WP_20140317_002 Jahanzeb Polo Cup is held every year in this ground. This year I had the pleasure of attending it. Apart from polo, tent pegging  and donkey race were held too which was quite amusing. 😛

Unfortunately I could not capture photos of the final of Jahanzeb Polo Cup but here are a few clicks….
