Gharial, Pakistan


Gharial (Snow)
c.1910

Gharial was a British infantry camp. Whether there was anything else there, the Internet won’t admit.

A British Infantry Regiment is located at Kuldannah, and another in a temporary camp at Gharial, which also receives detachments from the summer garrison of Rawalpindi. Barian, on the borders of this district and Hazara, usually has a British Infantry Regiment from Peshawar or Nowshera. Gharial is said to be a corruption of Gharibal and refers to a hill top above the Kashmiri Bazar, where one Ghariba, Gujar, used to graze his cattle many years ago.
