Picture of the day

A nice view of the Attock on the way to KPK province (formerly known as NWFP). One of the most historical areas as most invasions into India travelled through these roads to Delhi. The Attock Fort was built primarily overlooking the Indus and Kabul river as a first line of defence against oncoming armies from Afghanistan and Central Asia.

Today the fort is used by Pakistani commando’s for special ops training and for holding high level prisoners.
