Badshahi Masjid

The Badshahi Mosque built in 1673 by the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb epitomising the beauty and grandeur of the Mughal era. Capable of accommodating over 55,000 worshippers, it is the second largest mosque in Pakistan, after the Faisal Mosque in Islamabad. The architecture and design of the Badshahi Masjid is closely related to the Jama Masjid in Delhi, India, which was built in 1648 by Aurangzeb's father and predecessor, emperor Shah Jahan.

The Minar-e-Pakistan is a tall concrete unique minaret in Iqbal Park. It is nearly 200 feet tall. The name can be translated as Minaret of Pakistan, Pakistan Tower or Pakistan Column. It is officially recognised as the National Monument of Pakistan. This is the site where in 1940, seven years before the formation of Pakistan, the Muslim League passed the Lahore Resolution, now the Pakistan Resolution, in which the need for a separate homeland for the Muslims from the Indian Empire under foreign rule was originally recognised.
