    Red Light Area (Heera Mandi): Ooops!

    Heera Mandi (Diamond Market) is the ancient red light area of Lahore. This place is behind the famous restaurant “Coco’s Den” in the ancient walled city of Lahore. I have not visited this place during the peak “tukdinadin” hours but can share information exchange from gossips. People go there to see girls dancing (mujra) and singing for the clients. Remember drinking is not permitted. From 11pm to 1am, dance performance is permitted by the local authorities and therefore by 11pm doors of visitor rooms in the houses open and girls sit on the sofas providing their full view to the people on the road. Again don’t think they are wearing revealing dresses….hehe!

    Warning – Although this business is permitted during said hours but there have been a couple of incidences in the past when the dancers and clients were arrested by the local police, just because the police head was not happy with the monthly “kickback”.

    Red Light Area (Heera Mandi): The Mosque by night

    On top of Cooco's by night - amazing view of the Badshai Mosque...later that evening we got a tour of the red light area - it was during Moharram, a Shi'ite holiday where we saw a procession. We also visited the home of a family of s e x workers, a mother and two daughters...but they were too busy negotiating with some clients...Hmmm I suppose it might be good to include more information about this profession in Pakistan...

    Dress Code: As long as you cover your legs it's ok - going to the restaurant itself you're fine wearing short sleeves but if you walk through the area at night you're better off covering arms and legs (no need necessarily to cover your head though)

    The heera Mandi (Diamond Market) is Lahore's famous red-light district in Shahi Mohalla(Royal Street) outside the walls of Badshahi Mosque. It does not become active until 11pm and makes for an entertaining night out. The girls are no longer allow to stand in the doorways, so you must pick a door, goods unseen. You enter , pay the old Madam; the drums and the hand-organ start to play...and then what happens next you must findout yourself but never go there with your family if u know what i mean...he he he( :

    Dress Code: wear smart so that you look rich......

    Once I have a visit 2 the HEERA MANDI in Lahore in is a very thin street outside the walls of Shahi Qilla. This street is called Shahi Mohallah. It was my Birthday and we go 2 visit Shahi Qilla so, we decided 2 see what is inside this street. We were 10 guys on aur Bikes when we reached we saw that the randi's r sitting without clothes in chairs on the street we saw and passed by her and she calls us and said that u all come and sex with me and give me just 100 Rs (just Imagine 100 Rs and 10 guys) she was so much ugly that we just ran away frm that street and never returned there.

    Dress Code: That was the street of Professional Sex Workers So, No girls frm good families required there. Dont even pass by that Street.
