Built by Lt J.Hartley Maxwell of the British Bengal Engineers on 1st March 1852, The Holy Trinity Cathedral is beautiful with a lot of history, inside there are numerous plaques dedicated to the various British casualties during the the war of independence and the rest of the British Raj. Located at Sialkot a small industrial city 2 hours from Lahore.
