It was constructed right outside Walled City at the intersection of the current day’s Empress Road, Allama Iqbal Road, and Circular Road. Mian Mohammad Sultan Chughtai, a former official of the Mughal Empire from 1859 till 1860, constructed Lahore Railway Junction. Had these not been constructed by the British, God knows how the situation would be.
