A street in Australia named after the Pakistani city of Multan
Pakistan is popular around the globe because of its rich history and culture and at many times the country has been honored with acknowledgment in various cities across the world.
But if we are a Pakistani, living in Australia and missing home then we should visit the "Mooltan Street", named after Pakistan's historic Multan city.
"Fancy a stroll this #FootprintFriday? Move to Mooltan Street in the outskirts of Melbourne, Australia, named after the historic city of Multan in the Punjab”. It was tweeted by Foreign Minister's Public Diplomacy account run by the Foreign Office.
The tweet added that Multan is often mentioned as the "City of Saints" with the city's "history widening deep into ancient times".
The street is in the Travancore suburb of Melbourne.
According to the Australian paper Herald Sun, the area is named after the Travancore House, a mansion in the area which is named after the former Indian princely state of the same name.
When the property was divided in the 1920s, several streets were assigned Indian or Asian names.
One of the streets was named Mooltan Street in honor of the city of saints.
