Rawalpindi: The ‘Queen of the Mountains’ Murree, which is the most famous hill station in Punjab, attracted a large number of tourists during Eidul Azha holidays, particularly as the citizens reached Murree from different areas to enjoy the pleasant weather.

On the first day of Eid, people remained busy greeting relatives, friends, and near and dear ones and rushed to different parks, Murree, Ayubia, Nathigali, and Patriata Chair Lift, on the second and third days of Eid, to enjoy the Eid festivity.

Murree Road, particularly on Tuesday and Wednesday, remained jam-packed with a stream of vehicles after tourists, especially from the twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad, and other adjoining areas, thronged the Murree, Ayubia, and Nathia Gali hill stations to beat the heat and enjoy Eid vacations. From Dhokri Chowk to Bhara Kahu and Chatter Park, the road was jam-packed with vehicles moving at snails’ pace.
