Pakistan to restore tomb of Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s spiritual guide

Pakistan plans to conserve and restore a Sikh ‘samadhi’ (tomb) and a Hindu temple, two important historical monuments located near the Lahore Fort, a media report said Tuesday.

The ‘samadhi’ of Bhai Vasti Ram, a spiritual guide to Maharaja Ranjit Singh, and the temple of Jhingar Shah Suthra, a Hindu mendicant of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb’s time, are two monuments which are planned for restoration, Dawn reported.

Quoting officials of Pakistan Punjab’s archaeology department, it said work on both projects would start in January and be completed in 2016.

Some very encouraging news to come out of Pakistan, a country which has recently only been in the news for extreme acts of violence against minorities.
