JUMP FOR JOY
Shimla Pahari, Lahore, Punjab


A young man jumps for joy as he welcomes the evening at Shimla Pahari in Lahore. The Shrine of Bibi Pak Daman (Pure Woman) is located nearby and houses the tombs of six women who are believed to belong to the family of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH). The great Sufi saint Data Ganj Bakhsh is said to have been a devotee of the Shrine.
