Cracks have appeared on walls of the historic “Gulmit Old House”, believed to be over 350 years old. The traditional house stands as a symbol of the ancient Wakhi culture, attracting hundreds of national and foreign tourists every year. Due to lack of care the local people have expressed fear that the cracks might widen with time, leading to collapse of the historical building. Reported by: Asghar Khan
