Munro Fort Steel Bridge DG Khan is a 33 km long mountainous area of N-70. The famous Fort Munro station in southern Punjab may change the country. A new CPEC road has replaced the old Rahim Yar Khan road with DG Khan. Munro Fort is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Pakistan. Dera Ghazi Khan is 85 km away.
It is named after Colonel George Monroe (also known as Tuman Leghari), a British Army Lieutenant Colonel, and is a hill station located at an altitude of 6,470 feet (1970 m) in the Dera Ghazi Khan. Although this historical complex has been known since British rule, it has been ignored for decades.
The Fort Munro steel bridge of DG Khan is a 33 km mountainous area of N-70. The famous Monroe Fort Mountain Station in southern Punjab can bring changes to the locals and the country.
Starting from Rakhi Gaaj-Khar-Bewata, the steel bridge project has installed eight steel bridges to make the mountain road comprehensive and safe for transport to Gwadar.
The old road from Rahim Yar Khan to Fort Munro (DG Khan) has been replaced by a new route in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. This is the latest photo of Fort Munro Steel Bridge, which will amaze you:
Fort Munro is a beautiful hill station, well worth a visit. It is a paradise in southern Punjab. In other words, this is a sight of sore eyes. The transfer from Multan to Fort Munro was a pleasant experience. On both sides of the road are mango trees. There is a jujube tree in the center. People will encounter a wheat field stretching to the eyes on the road. Farmers are busy harvesting, baling wheat, and threshing.
When a man drives toward Dera Ghazi Khan, he can see countless grains of sand. There are dunes everywhere. Once it reaches Sahi Sarwar, the mountains stand out. In addition, a stone crusher for breaking stones and unloading the broken materials into trucks has attracted attention. It goes without saying; these stones are used to build roads. The more people reach Fort Munro via Sahi Sarwar, the more dangerous the arid Rocky Mountains become, and winding roads are built around them. You should turn left and right and watch out for trucks and cars coming from the opposite direction. This is not all. Sitting in the front seat, you will feel chills. About 30 minutes later, you can see the jeep sliding on the mountain.
When people approached Fort Monroe, let alone the hillsides, the vast, rough stones stacked in the mountains facing the highway made the heartbeat. One lane leads to residential areas into the valley and the other to Fort Munro. When a person arrives at Fort Munro, one eye rests on the pine trees and bushes, welcoming newcomers and giving people a comfortable feeling. At the top of Mount Munro, you will find the Deputy Commissioner’s House/ Munro’s Hut, the ruined fortress, the court and the Office of Political Assistant, the Political Assistant/Sandman House, the Commissioner’s House, and the British Cemetery. Unexpectedly, a jogging trail on the mountain leads to the above-mentioned place. People can enjoy the magnificent scenery while walking.
The Deputy Supervisory Board appointed Monroe Lodge to commemorate the monitor’s position and named the entire district. To celebrate the famous diplomatic magician, he was aptly named the “House of Political Aides” Sandman Palace. He almost single-handedly controlled the fierce Baluchi and Broch tribes under British control.
A few steps away from 1950 commemorating the Balochi Tribe and Pakistan’s Joint Memorial, it is located on the hill of Fort Munro. The dilapidated Palestinian Authority courts and offices are on the hillside overlooking the canyon. Unfortunately, the inscription on the monument is faded: “Ilhaq Balochi Pakistan. ” Interestingly, the names of all the grand Baloch Sardar (including Mazari, Gurchanis, and Legharis) are carved on the back of the monument.
It is not difficult to mention that Balochistan is only 15 km away. This brings me to another interesting aspect of Monroe. The deceased British were buried in a historic cemetery in Britain. There are five graves in total.
It would be helpful to discuss Bloch’s culture and the indigenous people there. They wear shalwar kameez and use their own words cheaply when speaking slowly. In essence, Baluchi is friendly and polite. When you start talking with them, they immediately become friends. As for the exceptional food of this place, Traditional Baloch Saji is very delicious.
At the end of the day, the Punjabi paradise south of Fort Munro is steeped in history. If you want to taste the Bloch culture, this is the place for you.
