    [quote comment=”7021″]Three reasons why this place is a railway station in Bahawalpur.

    1. First of all, the architecture of the building suggests it is a railway station.

    2. As Roshan Malik pointed out there is a town in Bahawalpur known as Baghdadul Jadid.The rulers of Bahawalpur seem to have some connection with Baghadad of Harun al-Rashid and the Arabian Nights. They are Abbasis, probably realted to Abbasids of Baghdad. Therefore they named a town in their state as Baghadadul Jadid or New Baghdad.

    3. If you try to read the sign, there is, on the left-hand side above the name of the station, written in English something like KM followed by a numerical figure followed by SMA. I guess KM is for kilometers and SMA stands for Samasatta, which is a junction and the next stop after Bahawalpur.

    4. We have been talking of Bahawalpur and its buildings on this blog recently.
