The Grand Trunk Road (commonly abbreviated to GT Road), also formerly known as Uttarapatha ("northern road"), Shah Rah-e-Azam or Sadak-e-Azam ("great road") or Badshahi Sadak ("king's road"), is one of South Asia's oldest and longest major roads. For several centuries, it has linked the eastern and western regions of the Indian subcontinent, running from Bangladesh, across north India, into Peshawar in Pakistan up to Kabul, Afghanistan. It was rebuilt on existing road during Maurya Empire in 3rd century BCE and later renovated by Suri empire, Mughal empire and British empire.
