  • Historical Photographs of Punjab

    This topic is about displaying Past of punjab. (Please note the word Punjab, its about Punjab only including the undivided punjab and present day east and west punjab and punjabi speaking regions now excluded from punjab and parts of Himachal, Haryana and Rajasthan)

    But one must mention the source like website, muesum, personal collection of somebody, newspaper magazine.


    If somebody has something to share... MOST WELCOME...

    Im hoping that its all about Punjab that is in Pakistan now... so here is the first addition from me:



    Hiran Minar

    Hiran Minar is set in peaceful environs near Lahore in Sheikhupura, Pakistan. It was constructed by Emperor Jehangir as a monument to Mansraj, one of his pet deers.

    The structure consists of a large, almost-square water tank with an octagonal pavilion in its center, built during the reign of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan; a causeway with its own gateway connects the pavilion with the mainland and a 100-foot-high minar, or minaret.

    At the center of each side of the tank, a brick ramp slopes down to the water, providing access for royal animals and wild game. The minar itself was built by Emperor Jahangir in 1606 to honor the memory of a pet hunting antelope named Mansraj.



    Unique features of this particular complex are the antelope's grave and the distinctive water collection system. At each corner of the tank (approximately 750 by 895 feet in size), is a small, square building and a subsurface water collection system which supplied the tank; only one of these water systems is extensively exposed today.

    Another special feature of Hiran Minar is its location and environment: the top of the minar is perhaps the best place in the province of Punjab to get a feel for the broader landscape and its relationship to a Mughal site.
    Looking north from the top of the minar, one can see a patch of forest which is similar to the scrub forest vegetation of Mughal times, while to the west are extensively-irrigated fields, a product of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, but similar in size and appearance to the well-irrigated fields of the Mughal period.

                    At 4:30 p.m. on April 13, 1919, Brigadier General Reginald Dyer opened fire on an unarmed
                    gathering in Jallianwala Bagh. 1,650 rounds were fired into the complex, with the narrow
                    only exit blocked by the troops. Close to 2000 people died either directly hit by bullets
                    or by jumping into the well to escape from the bullets. Most of those that died were not
                    freedom fighters but rather villagers that had arrived in Amritsar for the Indian festival
                    Baisakhi and had gathered in the park.

                    India was at a crossroads. World War 1 had ended and the spirit of freedom was abundant.
                    Riots were increasing across the country. On April 10, two Punjab Congress leaders, Dr.
                    ** Kitchlew and Dr. Satyapal, were deported to the Kangra Valley. The day before
                    Gandhiji had been arrested. On the Morning on April 13th, Brigadier General Dyer's troops
                    marched through the city and declared that no congregation can happen in Amritsar. In the
                    evening, over 20000 Indians gathered in Jallianwala Bagh, some to visit the park and others
                    to listen to a set of speeches condemning the Rowlatt Act. When the troops arrived they
                    gave way no warning, they made no attempt to quietly disperse the crowd. They blindly shot.

                    Dyer, who had his orders from General Dwyer, did not regret his act and was soon relieved
                    from his duty after an investigative commission found the shooting to be unjust. However
                    Colonial India forgave him and he retired in comfort. General Dwyer however, was hunted
                    down by Udham Singh in England and shot. Though very late, he paid the just price for
                    the massacre at Jallianwala Bagh. To millions of Indians, this place will always be a
                    blood stain on India's struggle for freedom.
