Create an itinerary including Minar-e-Pakistan
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. With our international travel planner, Lahore attractions like Minar-e-Pakistan can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Spacious serene environment to spend sometime relaxing. Many activities are also available during weekends. We took photos with snakes and macaws and did a tour of the area in a golf car.

  • You'll see this before going to the mosque. Nothing exciting just a statue to see to see and get a few photos.
