    Capitalization

    Hi,

    Should it be "Pakistan's Biggest Park" or "Pakistan's biggest Park." in the following line? And is a "the" needed before "Pakistan"?

    XYZ is Pakistan's biggest Park.

    Should it be "Victorian Gate" or "Victorian gate" in the following line?

    It's like a Victorian gate.

    Thanks

    If it isn't the proper name of the park, it sould be Pakistan's biggest park.

    If Victorian Gate is a name of the gate (proper name - like city name, street name etc.) it should be with capital letters (Victorian Gate).
