This was disclosed by LCS President Kamil Khan Mumtaz, a conservation architect from Pakistan, who was in the city and took a tour of 122-year-old Khalsa College campus.
"I am happy to visit this historic building. Its architect Bhai Ram Singh had planned many buildings in Lahore also. We will provide expertise to Khalsa College management and would be further working to preserve other such buildings in the city", said Khan.
