Bahawalpur Diaries: The Wonders of Noor Mahal

After a day or two in Multan, we decided to go visit Bahawalpur, a city only one or two hours away from Multan. It’s a very small, clean city and it has a lot of famous places to visit. We only had one afternoon, and since it was too hot to go to the desert…

The Khewra Salt Mines is located in Khewra (why am I so obvious 🙂 …)and it’s Pakistan’s largest and oldest salt mine. The salt reserves at Khewra were discovered when Alexander…
