    This monument was build in the memory of Pakistan Resolution, passed by All India Muslim League in its annual meeting on 23rd March 1940. In this resolution they dmanded a seperate home land from England Goverment (who was ruling India that time). This is a beautiful architectural tower.

    It is the trade mark of Lahore. Its foundation stone was laid on 23rd March 1960 & was completed in 1968. Its structure is a mixture of modern & mughal architecture designed by a Turkish architect, Murat Khan. Surrounding park is called Iqbal Park.

    Tower phobia

    Minare Pakistan

    I confess to having a phobia about stairs, specifically narrow or spiral stairs.

    Unfortunately, the fact that the lift was out of order unfortunately meant that I was unable to go to the top, and had to admire it from the ground.

    Minar-e-Pakistan during sunset

    The Minar-e-Pakistan, in the park on the opposite side of famous Badshahi Mosque, is a modern 'Eiffel Tower' on the spot where on 23 March 1940 the Muslim League Party Of British India passed the resolution for the creation ot the Independent Muslim country of Pakistan. You can climb to the top for an excellent view of the Lahore fort, Badshahi Mosque. the Tomb of Ranjit Singh etc. There is also lake there where the boats are also moored.

    Minar-e-Pakistan is a monument that was made in the memory of a convention that took place in Lahore in 1940. On this occasion, the great muslim poet Allama Muhammad Iqbal envisioned the creation of a seperate muslim country, which later came to be known as Pakistan.
