Photographs of PoK monuments displayed at ‘National Unity through Monuments’ exhibition organised on PM Modi’s 69th birthday

Beautiful images of the Ramkot fort on the banks of the Mangla dam lake, ancient Buddha Mujassama in Gilgit Baltistan, the Sharada Peeth, Ali Baig gurdwara, and the fountains and gardens at Khuiratta were a part of the exhibition.

Beautiful images of the Ramkot fort on the banks of the Mangla dam lake, ancient Buddha Mujassama in Gilgit Baltistan, the Sharada Peeth, Ali Baig gurdwara, and the fountains and gardens at Khuiratta are on display as part of an exhibition titled “National Unity Through Monuments”, which opened on Tuesday to mark Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s 69th birthday.

According to the reports, the exhibition was organised on the occasion of the 69th birthday of Prime Minister Narendra Modi by the National Monuments Authority with an aim to celebrate “national unity, peace and tranquillity under the leadership of Narendra Modi”.

The event was inaugurated by Union Minister of State for Culture and Tourism (Independent Charge) Prahlad Singh Patel at the National Monument Authority (NMA) here.

Alongside featuring photographs of ancient monuments in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir, the exhibition also featured stunning images of monuments from Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh and other places.

The exhibition had also unveiled pictures celebrating the country’s rich historical past. The photographs of the Shankracharya temple on the hill overlooking the Dal lake in Kashmir, the Raghunath Temple built by the first Dogra ruler Maharaja Ghulab Singh in 1835, now in PoK and the Lamayuru, one of the largest and oldest monasteries in Ladakh, among others were displayed at the exhibition too.

The picture of the Kirti Toran in Vadnagar, flanked by PM Modi’s present-day and childhood photographs on either side was one of the main attractions.

Also known as the “Kirti Stambh”, the 40 feet toran is known for the design of its two pillars, and is one the most popular tourist attractions in the region. “The village where our Prime Minister was born, the boy who sold tea near the Kirti Toran became the greatest icon of India,” read the caption of the photograph.

A special section announced ‘The Cultural Heritage Sites in PoK’ with a board outside the National Monuments Authority (NMA) complex in New Delhi listing 28 heritage sites that fall in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. The list covered architectural and cultural monuments in the districts of Bagh, Bhimber, Haveli, Kotli, Mirpur, Muzaffarabad, Neelum Valley and Sudhanoti.  Forts, Mosques, shrines and other archaeological ruins were included in the collection.
