Punjab: Pakistan has thrown open the historic 19th-century old Gurdwara Chowa Sahib in Punjab province for pilgrims, seventy-two years after Partition. Gurdwara Chowa Sahib located at the northern edge of the Rohtas Fort near Punjab's Jhelum City was opened for public on Friday. This comes in the run-up to the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev in November.

Commissioned by Maharaja Ranjit Singh, the Gurdwara was constructed in 1834. "A multi-million project will be initiated by the federal government for restoration of the gurdwara situated in Rohtas Fort near Jhelum," Express Tribune quoted Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETBP) Secretary Shrines Imran Gondal as saying. This comes days after Pak government reopened 1,000-year-old Shawala Teja Singh Temple located in Pakistan's Sialkot.
