Pakistan is an independent state with five (5) provinces Punjab, Sindh, Baluchistan, NWFP and Gilgit Baltistan. Lahore is situated in the province Punjab. It is the second largest in Pakistan after Karachi and 18th largest city in the world. Lahore is considered as a heart of Pakistan because a lot of historical places and shrines are here. It attracted the tourists with its walled city, shrines and Mosques.
Lahore is more famous for Badshahi mosque, the tomb of our national poet Allama Iqbal is there. Beside the Badshahi mosque, Lahore Fort situated and along with these monuments Minar-e-Pakistan also there.
The old food street located at the back of Lahore fort in which you not just enjoy the cultural food of Lahore but also enjoy the culture and colors of Lahore. The well-known restaurants of food street are Cocos den and Haveli.
Pakistan’s most important Daata Darbar Shrine was built in Lahore. It is in the honor of Ali Hujwiri, commonly known as data Ganj Baksh who lived in the city during the Ghaznavid era in the 11th century. Thousands of people visit here every day and pray. A lot of other shrines and mosques situated in Lahore, in which Bibi Pak Daman, Mian Mir, Nizam-ud-Din, Wazir Khan Mosque, Moti Masjid, Sunehri Mosque and Grand Jamia Mosque etc are included.
We also need to focus on our old traditions which we do not follow. We follow other’s culture and traditions without any sense of responsibility. I personally think we need to enhance tourism in Lahore. It will increase our economy and it will help us to maintain the beautiful places of Lahore. Now it is our duty to maintain the culture and traditions of Lahore.
Please think about it and do something on your own…………
