  • An old master piece I heard Govt has declared it National Heritage
  • Lohari gate is enriched with havelis and heritage homes. Many remains of the affluent families are still seen there in the form of houses and havelis. One of the interesting havelis you come across inside Lohari is the Lal Haveli. The building is on the eastern side of the Lohari Mandi Bazaar, north of Chowk Lohari Mandi, the second house on the right as one enters the bazaar. The Lal Haveli (Red House) is a residential structure that has one of Lahore’s best preserved cut-and chased brickwork and plaster mouldings on a fair-faced brick ground and exquisite wooden jharokas on the three principal floors. The brickwork has been kept painted over the decades with a coat of red ochre paint which gave the house its name. Local tradition also has it that the haveli was built by the maharajah of Kashmir for a favoured courtesan by the name of Daru. For this very reason it is also known as Mai Daru’s Haveli. The exact date of construction is not known, but it was sometime in the late 19th century.
