City from 1000 BC

organized around six eras of Lahore history and architecture. The walks are free, fun, and easy to follow. We’ll help you explore the city of Lahore, and its many layers of history, at your own pace.

Lahore walled-city is widely believed to be the one of the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world, with evidence of habitation dating back 1000 BC. Its location and persistence have made the city a nexus for civilizations come and gone

Your hand-shake with Mughal Era

The Walled City was bestowed with numerous monuments during the Mughal era, with some of Lahore’s most iconic structures being located in the Walled City, such as the lavishly decorated Wazir Khan Mosque, the massive Badshahi Mosque, and the Shahi Hammam.

Remember Rangoon city in Mayamar ? where he last Mughal ruler Bahadur Shah Zafar was sent to on an exile till death and his entire family (including his two sons and grandson) was executed at the Khooni Darwaza also known as Lal Darwaza in Delhi.

Do not insist if a shopkeeper doesn't accept money from you for buying stuff, this is his pride.

Shaking hands is the way locals show respect to their guests. People are delighted to welcome foreigners.

Walk in comfort and freely

You may want to walk here to learn something specific: a new language, a new cuisine, aspects of a different culture, or a deeper appreciation of faith or spirituality. You are free to go any where, people here would come to you for small talk or they might even ask for a selfie. This is how they try to show their hospitality

Your quest to know more, let it follow you

Surely your quest would be asking for more if you have visited through world’s best known walled cities such as Dubrovnik ( Croatia ), The Pink City in Jaipur ( India ), Ávila‎ ( Spain ). Think of your walk through Byzantines structure built by Romans in Diyarbakir, Turkey.
