The district government sent a project digest (PC-I) on Wednesday for restoration of a gate in the Walled City.
According to the PC-1, a sum of Rs240 million will be spent on three schemes; restoration of Haram Gate, conservation of visitor’s lodges at Darbar Musa Pak Shaheed and restoration of jewellers’ market on both sides of the road in the walled city.
Officials said conservation of the lodges would cost Rs26 million.
All three projects would be completed with financial assistance from the Italian government.
Haram gate would be restored to its original form and public toilets would be built near it.
Installations of Multan Electric Power Company would be removed from the site and the facade of the area would be improved.
Restoration of Sarafa Bazaar includes conservation of old houses, their traditional wooden windows and blue Kashi Kari tiles.
Electricity and telephone wires would be moved underground. Water supply systems would also be upgraded.
