The Mosque is stunning with a few remaining frescoes. Unfortunately people vandal this extraordinary place with scratching walls and a bit of graffiti. The Pakistani government has worked hard to bring the place to full glory. While there, several wedding contract signing ceremonies were happening. The men and women looked amazing in their finest. So many people wanted to take photos with us and also to have photos with us that we could take for our memories. There is a lot of wide open sunny space. Drink water. Wear a hat. Consider an umbrella. You’ll need it.

When in Lahore it is essential to visit the Wazir Khan Mosque, a 17th century mosque located in the inner city. The mosque dates from the period of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan (and was constructed from 1634-1641), and is richly decorated with magnificent tiles and wall paintings . It would be a good idea to combine your visit to the mosque with a trip to the nearby Shahi Hammam baths - which have recently been renovated. Be sure to take bottled water. If you a wee bit adventurous, you can also enjoy a meal in the inner city. If the timing is right try Cuckoo's Den which has a royal view....and more expensive than ordinary local restaurants.

This place is enormous and were lucky to get in early since there was a private VIP event. The stories of this huge fort are wonderful to hear. This is an UNESCO project and slowly being restored. Unfortunately it has deteriorated quite a bit. Bri g in water, hat and an umbrella if you can. The sun and heat can be a big problem.

A well kept Museum having different areas of Gandhara Art, Pakistan history, old coins old dresses and valuable paintings. The Ghadhara Art section is the best as to the wide range of valuable statues and different pots and ornaments used at that time are well preserved.The Museum is fully Air-conditioned and is a good place to escape a hot sunny day. You can spend 4-6 hours easily.

Walled City of Lahore, a heritage city almost 4000 years old. Having International Heritage Sites and other Landmarks of Mughal, Sikh and British Era
Of course you’ll find mosques and other museum locations within the walled city. But you will also see lots of shops and winding roads and people living life today. I loved looking up and seeing old wooden balconies which are part of houses. So definitely look up. I’m told a lot of money has been spent to clean up the streets making them easier to walk and navigate. I love feeling the energy of this very active area.

I have visited this place many times and found that thi sis good for a group of people, in spring especially to see flower show, sometime cultural shoes and food points inside.

Shahid is incredibly knowledgeable, efficient and funny. He not only provided a good historical, regional and cultural overview of the main sights and of Lahore itself, but was also willing to engage in more in-depth discussion on certain subjects if you were particularly interested. He showed me some of the more unusual aspects that I didn't read about - like the voice-throwing tricks in Badshahi Mosque - which can only come from someone born and raised in Lahore. He came recommended from the British High Commission and the British Council for good reason - and I have certainly recommended him on.

This institute is more than 100 years old. It has majestic buildings, big green grounds. The students are well dressed and well mannered. Horse riding is a fun to watch. Initially it used to accommodate children of feudal lords but now whoever qualifies and can afford can get admitted.

Driving by this location was crazy with people celebration Resolution Day on 3/23. That meant stopping by a couple of days made more sense. This monument celebrates resolution. It’s tall and starts the conversation of politics in this area. It’s not that pretty. But it definitely has significance and is worth checking out.
