Bedi Mahal

The Bedi Mahal is in Kallar Seydan, District Chakwal, Punjab, Pakistan. It was built in the 1850’s by Khem Singh Bedi, a direct descendent of Guru Nanak Dev Ji. The building is in ruins today and is in the grounds of a high school. We were fortunate to be allowed into the building to view many unique features and frescos that adorned the walls.

We later visited a roadside cafe nearby where we met an elderly gentleman who told us a little about the area. He vaguely recalled that in March 1947 (rather than August) mobs came into the area. About 400 Sikhs took shelter in the Bedi Mahal which was not attacked.
