Salt Mines Post Office - Khewra

Salt Mines Post Office

Post Office

Do not miss the Salt Mines Post Office. It is not just a building but it is really a proper post office and you can send the post all over the World from here ! There was a post man sitting inside with his stamps book and register to manage all the post. It is also made here to facilitate the miners as well as the tourists to send mails to their loved ones back home. I was very surprised to see it !

This Post office is also made only by Salt! Have you ever imagined the the salt you put on your eggs in the morning could be so useful ? :-)

Address: Inside the Khewra Salt Mine.

Directions: Enter the Mine and walk straight ahead and make the first right turn. Walk for half a minute and the post office will come on your left hand side.

Glowing Salt Masjid inside the Salt Mine ! - Khewra

Glowing Salt Masjid inside the Salt Mine !

Badshahi Masjid

Everything in this little Masjid is made of Salt ! from Minarets to the Door Steps ! Everywhere there is salt. When we asked the guide, how have u been able to attach these bricks together ? he replied that Salt was crushed and used instead of Cement to built this masjid :-) To beautify the Masjid, they have used different colours of Salt Bricks, Red, Pink, White are the major coloured bricks. Between the Bricks they have left space for the bulbs to lit the Masjid. It was a great sight to witness such a Masjid in 21st Century !

Address: Inside the Salt Mine

Directions: Enter the Mine and turn first right. The Masjid will come after 5 mins of walk on your left hand side.

My friends sitting on the steps of the Masjid. - Khewra

My friends sitting on the steps of the Masjid.

Badshahi Masjid in the Salt Mine !

Miners have done a lot of work here inside the mine. They work everyday for about 8 to 9 hours inside this long twisting mine. so, it was not so easy for them to get out of the mine 5 times a day to say their prayers. For this reason they built a beautiful Masjid (Mosque) inside the mine ! They have given the name of this Masjid on the famous Majid of Lahore made by Moghuls - Badshahi Masjid.

Address: Inside the Salt Mine

Directions: Go straight into the mine and turn first right, this Masjid will come on your left hand side.
