In this painting, I have painted the architecture of Peshawar University. The University of Peshawar, is a public research university located in Peshawar, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan.The university is one of the oldest universities in Pakistan, and is ranked as one of the highest rated universities in the country. In its inaugural year it had an enrollment of 129, of whom one was a female. The university was founded as an expansion of the Islamia College. The founder of Pakistan, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, who had visited the college in 1928 had great admiration for it, referring to it as ‘my college’ and adopted it as one of the three heirs to his fortune, along with Aligarh University and Sindh Madrassa (his own school) in 1939. For Jinnah the university was a gift to students of the province, in recognition of the part played by them in the making of Pakistan, and how it was the Pashtuns who had fought the Indians and captured Azad Kashmir.
