City Landmarks – The Principal Bungalow

Impressive. The Bungalow with the best view. Part of the DJ Science College. The Principal Bungalow reminds us of the days when Principal of a college was important enough to reside in such a marvelous bungalow. Chances are that you have not seen it before. Reason: It is overshadowed by magnificent DJ Science college building. Tall ugly walls keep it hidden too.

Next time you cross DJ Science College crossroad while coming from Shaheen Complex, notice this piece of art on your left, right opposite to DJ Science College structure. Get a better view if rusty gates are open. It is being renovated now, possibly for a museum. It smells of wood and new paint. Walking through the entrance you can’t help loving the extensive woodwork. The wind swirls through the arches and into the rooms, which shows how concern was the architect for keeping the bungalow cool during summer days. Move to the top through the central staircase. Take a moment to appreciate the exquisite work. most of it is new, but restored, well quite decently. Forget everything else and open the window facing DJ Science College. Take a moment and appreciate the view. The best view from a window in this town.

Mr. Principal! You were a lucky man.
