I’ll let the photographs speak for themselves for this Daily Prompt. I took these when I was traveling back from Lahore to Rawalpindi. So we had to board a train at Lahore Railway Station. It is a historically significant Place.
The Lahore Junction railway station (Urdu: لاہور جنکشن ریلوے اسٹیشن ) in Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan, was built by British colonists between 1859-1860 at the cost of half a million Rupees. It is the junction of Lahore-Amritsar railway line. It is of typical grand British architecture in South Asia during the British Raj period. The railway network established by the British was extensive and is one of their lasting contributions to the culture and infrastructure of this region.
The railway station has 11 platforms (1 to 9, with 2 extra platforms, 3A and 6A). Platform No. 1 is of special importance, as this platform is the destination of “Samjhauta Express“, the train service between Pakistan and India.
I wish I’d taken more pictures as I have very few which don’t even show the grand specs of this place. It’s architecture dating back to British times is stupendous ! Maybe next time I’ll take more if I ever get to visit it because these photographs doesn’t do this place justice. I was lucky to not be there during rush hours thus I was able to capture the more toned down side of it.
