If you’re in Australia and you miss your country, you can pay a visit to this street which will remind you of Pakistan. Foreign Minister’s Public Diplomacy account run by the Foreign Office tweeted a post showing pictures of street in Australia named after the city of Multan, Pakistan.
“Fancy a stroll this #FootprintFriday? Head down to Mooltan Street in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, named after the historic city of Multan in the Punjab,” said the tweet.
The street is located in the Travancore suburb of Melbourne.
As per 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 subdivided in the 1920s, a number of streets took Indian or Asian names.
One of the streets was named ‘Mooltan Street’ in honor of the city of saints.
