A 1,000-year old Hindu temple located in Pakistan’s Sialkot city, which was sealed for the last 72 years, has been re-opened for devotees. Shawala Teja Singh Temple built by Sardar Teja Singh was closed during the Partition. Hindus stopped visiting the temple after a mob damaged it in 1992, while protesting against the demolition of Babri mosque in India. The Pakistan government said that the work to preserve and restore the temple will start soon.
