HOTEL EXECUTIVE HOUSE MULTAN

.

It is all about Multan city of Pakistan which is said to be 5000 B.C. historic oldest living city and sister city of Rome. Rig Veda was written here, Alexander the great captured it, famous Chinese traveler Hieun Tsang visited here. Previously it was called “City of Gold” now called “City of Saints”. I have given all information regarding tourism to help tourists and pilgrims.

 Ghanta Ghar (Multan)

 Ghanta Ghar or Clock Tower of Multan was built in 1884 A.D. du
ring British Raj in South Asia. After passing municipal act 1883 British needed offices to run the city. They started constructing Ghanta Ghar in Multan on 12 February 1884 and it took 4 years to completely build this building. It was constructed over the ruins of Haveli of Ahmad Khan Sadozai which was completely destroyed during Siege of Multan. The hall and building was named ‘Ripon Hall and Ripon Building’ after the name of Ripon, viceroy of India at that time. And clock tower was named Northbrook Tower after the name of Northbrook, a former viceroy of India (1872-1876).
This building was completed, opened and offices shifted in 1888.
Hall was named ‘Jinnah Hall’ after the independence of Pakistan in 1947 and it used for office meetings, cultural programs and public was also allowed to enter here. With passage of time this building became insufficient for offices and small hall was also insufficient for meetings, so offices were shifted from here. Now idea is to change this historic building into a museum.

Multan Fort

The Multan Fort, a military installation, was a landmark of Indian defence and architecture.According to some estimates the original fort was built between 800 to 1000 Bc. It was built near the city of Multan, in Punjab province, on a hillock separated from the city by the Ravi River. The fort was destroyed by British forces during the British occupation of India.

The fort was notable both for its effectiveness as a defence installation and for its architecture. Contemporary reports put the walls of the fort at 40 to 70 feet (21 m) high and 6,800 feet (2 km) in circumference. The fort’s 46 bastions included two flanking towers at each of the four gates (the De, Sikki, Hareri and Khizri Gates). A ditch 25 feet (7.6 m) deep and 40 feet (12 m) wide and an 18-foot (5.5 m) glacis protected the fort from intruders.

Within the fort stood a citadel flanked by 30 towers, enclosing mosques, a Hindu temple and a Khan’s palace. The citadel was severely damaged by the battering it got from the guns of Maharaja Ranjit Singh in 1818.
