At Jallo, PHA Reopens The Butterfly House
October 5, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Pakistan News
The butterfly house at Jallo Park’s botanical garden was reopened to the public on Monday by the Parks and Horticulture Authority (PHA), who also launched a number of initiatives aimed at introducing stunning butterflies of all types, breeding them, and fostering their growth.
After the government refurbished the house, it was reopened. Lockdowns related to Covid-19 caused the plant to close in 2020.
The creation of the butterfly house in 2016 marked the beginning of Pakistan’s practise of housing a variety of the most exquisite butterflies.
A group of youngsters from Gujranwala visited the home on Monday and enjoyed witnessing butterflies of different sorts, according to a PHA official source who spoke to Dawn.

The PHA collected a wide variety of butterfly species in 2016, some of which were imported. The PHA collaborated with the departments to complete a significant tree-planting operation in order to create a favourable natural environment before releasing the butterflies inside the residence.
The house has a briefing area as well, where guests can learn more about the various species, their reproduction, growth, etc. The height of the ceiling and roof of the home makes it difficult to regulate temperature in inclement weather (winter and summer). However, the PHA installed chillers and other temperature-controlling machinery. However, the equipment malfunctioned, and later, the government shut down the plant as a result of lockdowns related to Covid.
By maintaining the roof, dome, and chillers, according to officials, PHA Director General Zeeshan Javed rendered the residence functional.
The Lahore Division Administration and the PHA claim that thousands of saplings were planted during a special campaign after the city’s Shining and Green Campaign.
“All portions of Lahore’s abandoned parks will be completely restored with tree planting over the next four weeks. Additionally, it was requested that the PHA director general provide a performance study, according to Lahore Commissioner Amir Jan. He suggested that the six and a half kilometre long area around The Mall, including Empress Road, be made more attractive by the PHA.
At a 500 kV grid station called New Multan, the National Transmission and Despatch Company (NTDC) has added a 250-MVA transformer to the existing 160 MVA (220/132 kV) transformer.
A representative stated that the transformer had been powered up just a few days prior.
According to the NTDC, a thorough strategy for gradually removing system limits was created to address system overload, particularly during the summer.
“The addition of the transformer would increase the grid station’s capability for loading and relieve pressure on Multan Electric Power Company customers. At the same grid station, a second transformer has been upgraded, the representative stated.
He said that the company’s industrial, rural, and urban customers will gain from the introduction of new transformers.
