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

Image

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.

Image

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.

Men of the Loodiaah (Ludhiana) Sikh Regiment in China, Circa 1860. One of the most profitable exports from East India Company's possession was opium, a drug that was sold to addicts in China. When Chinese attempted action against the agents selling the drugs, the reaction was always the same - violence. Despite the termination of the East India Company's mandate, the British Government continued the trade and the armed aggression against the Chinese. The three conflicts which ensued are called the Opium wars for that reason.

This International level War Museum, located on GT Road, Ludhiana – Amritsar Highway (NH-1), about 5 KM from Ludhiana Railway Station, near Hotel Amaltas, was instituted in 1999 on a 4 acres plot with a few bare essentials, today stands strong. At the very entrance stands a huge statue of maharaja Ranjit singh sitting proud and magnificent on a throne. Towards the right and left of the statue one can find tanks, apec car, anti-aircraft gun, car scout and an old sukhoi fighter aircraft, along with a massive model of the ins vikrant. Walking up several steps one is lead into the entrance hall, where on the right is a line of portraits of Punjabis, who have been awarded the Paramvir Chakra, Mahavir Chakra and Vir Chakra.

Maharaja Jagatjit's Singh palace in Kapurthala now houses Sainik School. The Maharaja's palace and gardens were modeled on Versailles. He hired a French architect M. Marcel, was inspired by the palaces of Versailles and Fontainbleau. Its plaster of Paris figures and painted ceilings represent the finest features of French art and architecture. It was built in renaissance style with the sunken park in the front (Known as Baija) and has many other similarities to that of Palace of Versailles. The construction of this palace took roughly eight years(1900-1908).The interior decoration of the palace, which is unique of its kind in India was carried out by expert European and Indian workmen. The great Darbar Hall is one of the finest in India. The palace is full of imported art work from France, Italy, Holland. (source:http://www.kapurthalaonline.com/)

These are some pics of Komagata Maru

Image



The Komagata Maru (also referred as "Kamagata Maru") was a Japanese steam liner, that was chartered by an affluent businessman, Gurdit Singh, to bring Indian immigrants to Canada. It began its journey from Hong Kong, sailed to Shanghai, China, then to Yokohama, Japan, and then on to Vancouver, British Columbia and Canada. This journey took place in 1914, carrying 376 passengers from Punjab, India.


Image


On May 23, 1914, the Komagata Maru reached Vancouver and anchored near Burrard Inlet. Both the Indians and the Canadian authorities had been waiting for it. The Canadians wanted to send the ship back to where it had originated. The Indians on the other side had lawyers, money and other provisions ready to help the passengers. The Canadian authorities did not let the passengers leave the boat claiming they had violated the exclusionist laws. The claim was that the ship had not arrived via direct passage and most passengers did not have the $200 that would have qualified them to enter British Columbia. For two months the passengers of the Komagata Maru, the Indians in British Columbia, and the authorities of British Columbia were involved in a heated legal battle. At the end of the two months only 24 passengers were given permission to legally stay in Canada. On July 23, 1914 the Komagata Maru was forced to leave Victoria harbor and return to Hong Kong.
