Rawalpindi: Commissioner Rawalpindi Captain (r) Muhammad Mehmood has said that there are seven small temples in an area of one kilometre around Sujan Singh Haveli and it has been decided to restore them. The project will also include a complete restoration of Sujan Singh Haveli for which a project concept-I (PC-I) has been devised.
He said that these seven temples around Sujan Singh Haveli would be identified and restored, and information about their historical status would be displayed at a prominent place.
He said this in a briefing regarding Sujan Haveli and Bhabra Food Street projects at the office Rawalpindi Metropolitan Corporation.
Chief Officer RMC Ali Abbas Bukhari, Metropolitan Officers and a representative of UNDP were also present in the briefing. Commissioner Captain (r) Muhammad Mehmood said that a survey also identified eight old buildings around Sujan Singh Haveli with wooden windows, ancient door and the facades of these buildings would be restored in the old style.
