QUETTA- Ziarat Residency burnt to ashes by the terrorists last year now been restored in its original shape will be inaugurated by the Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif on August 12, 2014.

The treasured national monument, a rest house used by Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah in his last days, located in the sleepy town of Ziarat was burnt to ashes when militants carried out bomb attacks on June 14/15 midnight, 2013. So intense was the attack that the flames took days to be extinguished.

Balochistan government vowed reconstruction of the Residency in its original shape from its own resources. The work started in April current year, which has been completed in record four months time.

The Ziarat Residency is spread over 8000 square feet. Established by English Colonial rulers in 1861, the residency served as a resting place for the founding father of the nation. Located in the mountainous Ziarat valley, the residency is surrounded by thousands years old ancient juniper trees.
