Lahore’s unique architecture and cosmopolitan culture has made it a popular tourist destination in recent years. Its old city is one of the oldest walled cities in the world and contains many of the city’s most impressive buildings such as the huge Lahore Fort. Other must-see sights here include the Badshahi Mosque, the Imperial Baths, Wazir Khan Mosque and the Eiffel Tower of Pakistan. The walled city has 13 gates dating back to the Mughal period, some of which are incredibly well preserved.
Lahore is home to one of the most highly regarded museums in Pakistan, the Lahore Museum, established in 1865. It has a massive collection of archaeological artifacts as well as a fascinating photography exhibit on the emergence of Pakistan as an independent state.
