  • A quite maintained place but for our history restoration there more can be done. The place was neat and clean from inside, from outside we can build path ways. Hope we have these in near future.
  • Nice historical collection of Ganhara art, different galleries like Pakistan movement of independence, sikh culture and many more.
  • Good place to visit and see the historic stuff but it was quiet hot inside the building. Mobiles are not allowed to take inside

Where to stay in Lahore

Visitors are met with a great deal of choice when deciding where to stay in Lahore, and not just because of the range of accommodations available. In this regularly congested city, travel can be a real pain, so the advantages and disadvantages of each district need to be weighed against each other. Each area has a mix of standard and luxury hotels, as well as guesthouses with private and shared rooms. The old town in the north has a wealth of architectural highlights to see, but little to do after dark. Further to the south, the Mall Road area has some chain hotels, restaurants, and places to go in the evening, while the areas of Defence and Gulberg have become synonymous with hotels and nightlife options.
