Fort Munro, Punjab

Fort Munro, Punjab

There is a Christian graveyard from British era here at the top of Fort Munro mountain. It was a favorite place for many British army officers, many of whom are now buried here.

Many of the tombstones have been either broken or stolen in past many decades which prompted authorities to cage the remaining heritage. As a nation we cannot and do not tolerate minority culture nor do we give a damn to historical artifacts and sites. That's a shame. This photograph was taken in 2005. I am not sure what became of this place.

This town straddles the Punjab-Baluchistan border.
