RAWALPINDI:Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad on Friday while announcing to donate his famous Lal Haveli for university said that he once used to sell books outside the haveli.
Lal Haveli is among the historic buildings in Rawalpindi. The haveli was built by Dhan Raj Saigol who left for India leaving the Haveli to his mistress Budhan Bai and thence it is said to have been the abode of that woman before the independence of Pakistan.
Saigol had a Masjid and a Temple built within the confines of his Haveli, masjid for the woman and a temple for himself. The woman left the place for good when her brother was murdered here.
