Minar-e-Pakistan, Lahore
(2.7/5 based on 75+ 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.

  • Minar-e-Pakistan is the biggest tower in Lahore, I have visited this place so many time, but with small kids it was also hard to tell them what it is and why it was build. but hopes as they will grow ...  more »
  • This place has very much importance in the history of independence of the country. This place has been the priority of locals and tourists to explore. Better to visit during evening time. 
  • High wonderful minaret, one of the main symbols of Pakistan. It is worth seeing, I believe. I liked.
