Minar-e-Pakistan, Lahore
(2.6/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web)
Covered in white marble and reflecting infamous Mughal and Islamic architecture, Minar-e-Pakistan commemorates Pakistani independence gained in 1940. A modern park surrounds the monument, buzzing with activity both day and night. Climb up 324 stairs or take an elevator to reach the top, standing at 92 m (300 ft) high where panoramic views across the city and surrounding mountains await. Look a little closer at the base of the monument to spot Quranic verses, the national anthem and other inscriptions, as well as the 99 names of Allah on the ten marble slabs. Don't miss the tomb of Hafeez Jalandhari-- the writer of the national anthem-- in the courtyard. Put Minar-e-Pakistan and other Lahore attractions into our Lahore travel itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • It's an historic place where the very existence of an independent nation for Muslims of India was first discussed at a public gathering.
