Sialkot, Pakistan's export capital and the sights and smells of Sialkot are of a different order than any other city in Pakistan. Horse drawn tongas are in plentiful supply as they ease down thin alleyways purportedly referred to as streets. Sialkot prides itself as the birthplace of Allama Iqbal. This is a city at work, which moves about briskly in the morning, and closes up early in the evening. The old city has a fascinating labyrinth of narrow streets and crowded bazaars. Down a small side street in the old part of the city is the shrine of Hazrat Imam Ali-ul-Haq (Imam Sahib). The path leading to the tomb is often lined with numerous prostrating pilgrims. The tomb of Imam Ali-ul-Haq is to the right, through a mirrored gateway tiled with Koranic inscriptions and geometric designs. The courtyard is a fascinating place to sit and absorb the atmosphere. On a low hill in the centre of the old city are the few remains of the Sialkot Fort. The shrine of the pir (saint) Muradala Shah is also on the hill. Other places of interest include the tomb of the great Muslim scholar, Mian Abdul Hakim and Hafiz Muhammad Alim, on Khadim Ali Road and the former residence of Dr. Muhammad Iqbal (1877-1938) which has been converted into a museum that contains some of his personal belongings and named Iqbal Manzil (Iqbal House). The best time to visit Sialkot is between October and April every year.
