Pakistan In Pictures

Tarbela Dam is one of the world’s largest earth and rock filled Dam and the second largest dam in the world by structural volume built on the Indus River (the Indus known as the “Abbasin” or the father of rivers) in Pakistan. The dam was completed in 1976 at a cost of Rs.18.5 billion. Over 15,000 Pakistani and 800 foreign workers and engineers worked during its construction. It is the biggest hydel power station in Pakistan having a capacity of generating 3,478 MW of electricity. The dam was designed to store water from the Indus River for irrigation, flood control, and the generation of hydroelectric power.
