    Default IJC visits Tilla Joogian on Sunday 5 th June 2011

    Dear Members & Friends of Islamabad Jeep Club ( IJC )

    Another adventurous & thrilling event arranged by Islamabad Jeep Club on Sunday 5 th June 2011.
    Assembled at Rawat & left for Tilla Joogian ( Near Rohtaas )

    Although it was very very hot even then Surprising eleven vehicles turned up for this event.

    As usual BBQ was arranged & served by non other than Zeb the great.

    Pictures will be uploaded by members soon

    Regards

    All IJC Members

    Writeup by Dr Nadeem Naeem
    Some of you may remember IJCs last year trip to Rohtas Fort, well actually it was more like a sand run special, with a super-special bog down of my TLC followed by another one by Safari Cruiser. That day we had hoped to also go on to see Tilla Jogian, but as it took nearly two hours to get the TLC out and afterwards another 30 minutes to pull out the safari, our plans had to be restricted.
    So this year when we had another invitation to visit the area, most IJCians jumped at the opportunity. For various reasons the planned trip got somewhat delayed (ideally this thing should not be attempted after March or max early April). As usual we had a vast mix of vehicles, with a huge GMC Suburban with 5.7l V8 to Saleem Sbs new Nissan path finder to couple of 1940’s/50’s Willys! So some were travelling in the luxury of Air-conditioning while others were braving the heat of June with enormous patience.


    The track towards the Tilla is unmarked, with no clear directions or distances mentioned it can becoming rather frustrating in the hot weather. I think it was approx 2km of broken metalled road beyond Rotas fort and than 19.5km of very rough broken stoned track upto the top at the altitude of some 3200 Ft. With 10 vehicles the progress was rather slow. We eventually decided to camp under tree shades approx 2 km before the peak. It seemed a very nice place with good views of the surroundings. Zeb our Food Minister started setting up the BBQ and rest leisured around. Shortly afterwards Almighty took pity on us and sent over some lovely clouds and lovely breeze bringing smiles to everyone’s face. It even drizzled for a little while but gentle enough not to affect our BBQ.


    Some of us drove up to the top to the Tilla before lunch, while remaining went-up afterwards. With the weather turning cooler everyone felt rejuvenated and really enjoyed the stunning views from the top. The pools of the olden times were empty, just imagining how nice it would have been to jump into them if they had water in it! Unfortunately like the rest of ffice:smarttags" border="0" alt="" />Pakistan, the olden building structures were all in very poor condition and devoid of any kind of restoration. Shamefully we have never been very good at preserving our very diverse heritage.

    Now lets come to the other rather yummy part……… Zeb’s BBQ, due to an early start most had come without breakfast. So when the tikka’s n kebabs started rolling off the skewers, everyone literally pounced on them. Everyone stuffed themselves with hot BBQ n chilled soft drinks. If only we had some iced mangoes to top it off, it would have been even yummier, but I heard no one complaining and nether am I! Thank you Zeb and the rest. It was simply Zabardast!

    The return journey down the hill was a bit quicker, as the convoy left in 3 groups with some gaps in-between. We had a short break for tea at Rohtas Fort canteen and later another break at a Road side hotel in Rawat. Overall it was great fun day out with IJC, thankyou all!

    Didn't take any pics myself during the trip, but there were plenty who did, so come on all...................keep posting!

    Default The Monastry of Tilla Jogian

    IJC visits Tilla Joogian on Sunday 5 th June 2011 - filephp?id7047

    Tradition holds that Tilla Jogian was founded 100 B.C. Tilla Jogian literally means Hill of the Yogis and lies about 50 kilometres North of Bhera. This is where the Kanphata Jogis, who pierced their earlobes and were an order founded by Guru Gorakhnath have left behind a monastery.

    <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comIJC visits Tilla Joogian on Sunday 5 th June 2011 - P<o:p>IJC visits Tilla Joogian on Sunday 5 th June 2011 - filephp?id7045</o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>

    Tilla Jogian also finds mention in the epic love poem Heer Ranjha of Waris Shah. Ranjha, the story's protagonist, who when spending his time on the rebound, sublimating his love & passion in the spiritual world, came here for consolation and got his ears ringed here as was the tradition of Guru Goraknath's followers.

    IJC visits Tilla Joogian on Sunday 5 th June 2011 - filephp?id7044
    Tilla Jogian comprises a complex of Hindu mandirs housing at least three baths and a network of waterworks with at least two minor dams.

    Tilla Jogian can be seen from districts of Mandi Bahauddin, Gujrat, <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comIJC visits Tilla Joogian on Sunday 5 th June 2011 - >&ltst1place alt</st1:place>Jhelum and Chakwal. It is situated on a commanding place near the <st1:place w:st="on"><ST1Jhelum</ST1</st1:place>.

    Default ....but we were too busy Rockracing down :)

    Yup, we were too freaked to spend another few hour bumping down the track, so to get things interesting me and Lazzaz just raced down as fast as we could.... he did a decent job keeping up Had to stop time and again for NN to catch up But made it down to Rohtas in just over two hours I think. We were almost done with tea by the time the Mitsus caught up

    Thanks for the kind words! The write -ups on Rohtas and Tilla are actually chaapaas from Wikipedia! I put it on Rohtas one but need to mention the source on the Tilla post!

    The well known Hadith encourages us to go to Cheen if we have to to search for knowledge. We should thank our lucky stars that Wikipedia saves us the journey on most occasions. Otherwise we would have been left with silly excuses like the road is still blocked Anyways long live Wiki..... pedia, leaks and all
