Best Places to Visit in Lahore


Eiffel Tower Replica

As you know everyone has to go to Paris to visit the Eiffel Tower however these days one does not need to go all the way to Paris just to see the Eiffel Tower. The researchers claimed that there are 130 reproductions exist all over the world one of them is in Lahore. A replica built by Baria town. Well I mean it isn't the real Eiffel Tower but it's the third-largest copy of the Eiffel Tower monument in the world. One of the perfect places for picnics in Lahore and visiting alone is one of the top 5 things to do in Lahore for Pakistanis and visitors its height is 80 meters and 262 in feet and it offers Eiffel coffee shop on the first floor fine dining restaurant on the second and a beautiful viewing deck on the top. the ticket to use the lift is a bit expensive but worth to use once. I went going on a clear day to see the barrier down and southwest of Lahore. there is also parking available and it is open 7 days a week from 7 a.m. to 12 a.m.

The Badshahi mosque

The Badshahi mosque or the Emperor mosque was built in 1673 by the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb it is one of the city's best-known landmarks and a major tourist attraction optimizing the beauty of Mughal era. the building is made of red stone which is a shining example of the Mughal era architecture when I was there in August the main square inside the first wall was blistering hot despite the carpets they put for people to walk I'm not sure if water was separate on the carpet to make it cool but it was wet which did not help as I was still wearing my socks you have to leave your shoes outside before entering the mosque but once you are inside the mosque it's quiet and inspiring wall art the tilework are beautiful and carry a long history you could sit there for hours just to admire the craftsmanship hence it is one of the top places to visit in Lahore while there you can also visit the tomb of Iqbal beside the mosque.

Lahore Fort

As you step out of the Badshahi mosque right at the front you would see the Lahore fort take left and go around the wall to enter Lahore fort if you don't want to walk around the fort you can pay for the golf cart it's an easy walk so unless it's pouring down or too hot I would suggest walking the fort inside the Lahore fort there are royal palaces gardens fountains baths and many great pieces of art and architecture from the Mughal period the fort was a capital for the Mughal emperor Akbar in the 1580s the area itself has been occupied since 1100 you can also hire government registered guides who give you the proper information and interesting narratives just bring plenty of water and comfortable Footwear the whole fort is open 7 days a week its timing is from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Minar-e-Pakistan

Minar-e-Pakistan used to call Monto park and it stands 70 meters tall in the middle of what looks like a park. It is situated on the opposite side of the famous Badshahi mosque. You can climb or take the lift to the top for an excellent view of the Lahore fort Badshahi mosque and the tome of Ranjit Singh. The dancing fountains are exceptional, there is golf cart rides a Pakistan History Museum and a good place to just sit around and enjoy the scenery it is easy to reach and with Badshahi mosque the whore fort and the walled city of Lahore in the vicinity make it one of the best places in Lahore.

National History Museum

Two minutes walk from the Minar-e-Pakistan passing through the garden you can arrive at the National History Museum which is in Iqbal Park one of the most visited parks in Lahore. The exhibits are well displayed and interactive which is one thing that I believe that very few museums in Pakistan have. You can learn about the history of Pakistan through audio and visuals. I enjoyed watching and listening to the history of Pakistani passports. I also took a virtual reality trip through the partition listened to various stories of Pakistani leading women and there are other videos as well. Truly wonderful and highly recommended. No food and drink are allowed not even water. The museum is closed on Monday but open Tuesday to Sunday and its timing is from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
