2. Majithia Hostel (a property of Evacuee Trust Property Board) which was lying vacant considered suitable for Haji Camp. Its location was ideal for the Haji Camp because of the fact that it was at walking distance from Railway Station and the junction place of all the public transport operating in the City of Lahore. Moreover, the place is surrounded by all types of hotels and restaurants to facilitate the lodging and boarding of Meeters and Greeters. The then Minister of Religious Affairs, Government of Pakistan himself visited the site and considered it most appropriate for the Haji Camp.
