A centuries-old ‘Guru Nanak palace’ was partially demolished by a group of vandals who sold its precious windows and doors in Pakistan’s Punjab province. According to Dawn News, the walls of the four-storey building had pictures of Sikhism founder Guru Nanak as well as that of various Hindu rulers and princes.
The four-storey building, located on New Lahore Road in Bathanwala village - about 100 km from Lahore, was allegedly demolished with the permission of Auqaf department officials.
Dawn further said Guru Nanak Palace was built of bricks, sand, clay and limestone. There were 16 large rooms in the building, all of which had at least three beautiful doors and at least four ventilators. The rooms were constructed with large broad walls that had cupboards with wooden doors and flowers carved into them.
