Islamabad, July 25:  Pakistani authorities have completed the rehabilitation and repair of 10 mandirs in cities across the country, including the famed Katas Raj temple in Chakwal, at a cost of millions of rupees.

The temples which were repaired or renovated by the government include the Krishna Mandir in Lahore, the Sadhu Bela shrine at Sukkur, Jholay Lal Mandir in Karachi, Gurpat Mandir Siro Ghat in Hyderabad, Bhagat Ram Mandir and Sant Thawar Das Mandir in Dadu and Krishna Mandir in Rawalpindi.
