Sights to See During Your Trip to Lahore!

LAHORE POLO CLUB
Lahore Polo Club is one of the oldest clubs in the world. The game of polo has been regularly played in the city for over a millennium by Emperors, Kings, Rulers, Princes as well as commoners. Visitors are welcomed to watch polo matches during the season and admittance to these games are free of charge.
The season begins in the middle of October and ends around the middle of May. The tournaments range from low goals (0 – 4) to 18 goal tournaments, which are played around Feb. – March. A number of foreign players feature in these events regularly.

LAHORE MUSEUM
Faqir Khana Museum

The Lahore Museum, situated on the Mall, was established in 1895, and was for a while curated by Rudyard Kipling’s father.
The museum contains a fine selection of paintings and weapons, and is particularly well known for its collection of artefacts from the Gandharan civilisation. Probably the most famous exhibit is the spectacular ‘Fasting Buddha‘.

Lahore Fort
Lahore Fort is located at an eminence in the northwest corner of the Walled City. There are two huge gates in the fortifications, one each in the middle of the east and the west sides. The western gate, known as Alamgiri Gate, is presently used as the main entrance; however, plans are afoot to open the eastern gate, the Fort’s Masjidi Gate, to the general public as well.

Shalamar Garden (Mughal Garden)

The Shalimar Garden is really magnificent site to visit in Lahore. The problem is the garden is not maintained very well, the water is not that crystal clear. And you will see that all fountains look like not working (off) all the timeThe Shalamar Garden was built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in Lahore in 1642. Garden is laid out in three descending terraces, which are elevated by 4-5 meters. To irrigate the Garden, a canal named “Shah Nahar” meaning Royal canal, was brought from a distance of over 161 kilometers.

Wagah Border

The India Pakistan border gate Opening ceremony starts one hour before sunset. I attended with family and the best time to reach there is 1.5 hours before sunset. It was great petriotic experience on both side of border. Wagah is the only road border crossing between Pakistan and India, and lies on the Grand Trunk Road between the cities of Amritsar, Punjab, India and Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. Wagah itself is a village through which the controversial Radcliffe Line was drawn.

Sozo Water Park
Sozo water park provides good fun activities in summer season. Some of the rides are good as well. The park is situated on one corner of the city along with the canal, hence provides a good overview of the city en route too. Stunning water park. One of the best in the country, no doubt. It is open 24 hours a day. You might want to be weary of the late night crowd, but besides that, it is pretty great.
