This Man Travelled To All The Landmarks On Pakistani Currency Notes

Cloud Solution Architect, Emaad Paracha, has recently set a backpacking trend that is driving people crazy. The travel enthusiast went on a journey across Pakistan’s provinces and visited all the landmarks printed on the Pakistani currency notes and coins. Emaad calls this tour his ‘Currency Project’.

“It all started in 2015 when I went on a family trip to Mohenjodaro. I had always noticed it at the back of our 20 rupee note”, said Emaad, as he revealed the initial idea behind coming up with the Currency Project.

“So when I got there, I asked the guide where the picture was originally taken.”

“I clicked a picture with an older crumpled note not thinking much of it then, but to my surprise, it was received well on social media. I thought to myself, why not make this an excuse to travel around Pakistan, take more of these pictures, and learn more about our history?”

On his list were monumental historical sites such as Bab-e-Khyber (10 rupee note), Badshahi mosque Lahore (500 rupee note), Islamia College Peshawar (1000 rupee note) and Faisal Mosque Islamabad (5000 rupee note.)

Traveling to these locations was fairly convenient on family trips, as the UofT student revealed, but the overall journey was stretched, primarily because of K2 and Ziarat – the accessibility of which was a little more troublesome than the rest.
