Mughal Sarai junction the 4th busiest Railway station in the country is located along the Grand Trunk Road, also called Sadak- e - Azam by Sher Shah Suri.
According, to the records it has been variously known as Mughalchak, Mangalpur, and Oven Nagar.
The township was named Mughalsarai when the railways established a junction in 1883. Mughalsarai was one of the corridors connecting North India with the east during the Mughal period.

It was around 830pm last night when we reached the Duyan in Masungi. On any other night, I knew I probably would have had just started eating dinner before ticking off a whole lot of nightly rituals and then finally going to bed at a late hour of around 1 or 2am. But in the midst of such a tightly woven fabric of darkness, a nocturnal chorus of obscure creatures that left no moment silent, and a waxing crescent moon that mostly hid behind the clouds, the night seemed to be so much deeper and so much later than it actually was.
So we laid on the gigantic hammock that seemed to float on nothingness, resting, taking in everything the city wasnt; everything natural. And we took as much of it as we could hoping it would last until the next time we find ourselves so in sync again #LiveNomadPH#FreeSpiritsPH
all throughout yesterday there was a real sense of "mourning turned to gladness." these two have a beautiful redemption story and it was such an honour to witness them begin their marriage and to celebrate their joy + love.
