Like Adil’s earlier post on Fall Foliage in Pakistan, I think this could have been easily confused with a picture of an old lighthouse flanked by the church as being from Europe or North America; but much like the foliage, it is very much in Pakistan. But where?

I took this photograph on my recent trip to Pakistan. Can you identify where this is and what these buildings are? Its a lighthouse, so its a good bet that it is near the sea. The question is exactly where? And what information can you share about the lighthouse?

    Dear OM:
    I have visited this post over a dozen times, and each time I remain fascinated by the shades of blue in the sky beyond the Lighthouse flecked with fleecy clouds that your camera has captured. . What beautiful landscapes our country provides!
    Standing next, in solemn stillness, is a simple structure for the worship of God. My mind cannot but help return to the verse of the Holy Quran (Sura II, Verse 164):–

    Behold! In the creation
    of the Heavens and the Earth;
    In the alternation
    of the night and the day;
    In the rain which God
    sends down from the skies;
    And the life which He gives therewith
    to an earth that is dead;
    In the beasts of all kinds
    that He scatters
    throughout the earth;
    In the change of winds,
    and the clouds which trail
    between the sky and the earth;
    [Here] indeed are signs
    for people that are wise.

    Thank you OM, for an inspirational post.

  2. […] Many of our readers have correctly guessed the light house in our latest photo quiz. Yes indeed, it is the light house located on Manora Island. […]
