In an attempt to bring Quetta back to its former glory, the provincial government has recently reconstructed iconic structures across the city.

The structures include the Princess of Hope (Makran), Quaid-e-Azam's Ziarat residency, the national animal Markhor and the national bird Partridge. Balochistan's heritage and history have been presented through these artistic monuments. 

"Airport road and its surroundings have always been desolate. We wanted to decorate this site so people of other cities could witness rich culture and iconic places of Balochistan when they are travelling towards airport or leaving it," Tariq Luni, the architect of the models, said while speaking to DawnNews.
