Photographer's Note

This photo was taken by me today inside the Khewra Salt mine at Khewra in the Punjab province in Pakistan.

The Khewra salt mine is the world's second biggest after a mine in Poland. Salt was discovered here in about 325 B.C when the horses of Alexander the Great's troops wre observed licking the ground. The mine itself is a natural wonder and here you can see the beautiful salt formation on the walls and ceiling. A few more photos from the mine will follow this coming week.

For more photos from the salt mine and to see all my photo albums of several hundred photos from interesting places in Pakistan, Germany and Great Britain, please visit my website www.azkhan.de
