    This place is at right side, when going from ALLAH wala chowrangi to Quaid Mazar. Alternatively you can reach here from Jail chowrangi as well and also from Gurumandar also using the middle lane where you have those messy water tankers area. Bundu Khan ( the famous eating restaurant lies on the same road going towards this park.

    This is the place I quite often go through. Interestingly i forgot the name. I hope it’s the same one. Am i right Unaiza ?

    Where the songs of all the sinless sweep across the crystal sea

    Pic is taken from Society office towers.
    Very correct it is end of Kashmir road leading to Shahrae Qaideen. The ground visibe in Far top was EID GAH and a venue for Kashmir road MANGAL (Tuesday) Bazar. That ground is leased to HR catering by City Govt, in 2004 for period of 33 years, and EID GAH disappeared. PECHS block 2 residents will confirm this, !

    Must ve been recent coz that place was called China Ground and I ve played lots of cricket there. The place has some area for wedding arrangements and only HR can cater there. But Eid prayers are always held there as well as cricket matches. I believe the pic is also taken from the HR offices on mezannine floor of Society Apts.


  20. K.A. (unregistered) on November 26th, 2006 @ 12:27 pm

    Oops sorry. Pic is taken from a height greater than the mez. floor. By the way the tuesday bazar was also held in the same park in the pic for a while. HR also has caters exclusively for weddings in KDA lawns right next to the ground. There’s a skating rink there too. Dunno about the squash complex though and the fitness club within. Ducks used to be there when this ground was a lake sometimes upto late 70s.
