5. About Lahore

Lahore (Urdu: لاہور, Punjabi: لہور, pronounced [la.hor]) is the capital of the province of Punjab, and the second most dense city in Pakistan, also known as the Gardens of the Mughals or City of Gardens, after the significant rich heritage of the Mughal Empire. In most popular culture Lahore is known as the Heart of Pakistan. It is located near the river Ravi and the Indian border, Wagah.
It is said that “If you haven’t seen Lahore, you haven’t even been born”.  The ancient city of gardens is still regal in its charms. Lahore is a beautiful example of a culture spanning 4000 years. The ancient fortified city has its grandeurs enclosed in its 13 gates and beyond.  Lahore is alluded to as the social heart of Pakistan as it proudly hosts most of the arts, cooking, fiestas, music, film-production, gardening and intellectuals of the nation. Lahoris pride themselves as being the fondest of food and the city justly nurtures this passion in several of its ancient localities like Food Street and Lakshmi Chowk.
Due to Lahore's rich history, the Mughal and colonial architecture has still been preserved in all its splendour. Mughal architecture such as, the Badshahi Mosque, Lahore Fort, Shalimar Gardens and the mausoleums of Jehangir and Nur Jehan are very popular tourist spots in the city. Various colonial buildings originally built by the British, such as the Lahore High Court, General Post Office (GPO) and many of the older universities still retain their Mughal-Gothic style.

The city has a lot to offer, being crowned as the second best tourist spot in Pakistan. City of gardens has always kept its distinctive individuality and still holds numerous of, centuries old gardens. A visit to the past in a regal subcontinent is what Lahore has to offer to its explorers. Be it the Imperial Masjid, The Royal Fort, Shalimar Gardens, mausoleums of Mughal emperors all there is that should be in a preserved cultural city.
