Being a student of history and art, I knew exactly where I wanted to go in my summer vacations. When it comes to historical structures, Historical Sites in Pakistan comes into mind. The country is home to some of the most important and impressive historical sites in the world. When I told my friend about my plans, she instantly wanted to join in. The flight to Pakistan was going to be long one, hence it was necessary to travel on business class. We didn’t want to tire ourselves out too much. Finding cheap business class tickets was easy. All you have to do is search the internet to find a good deal.
I remember boarding on the plane and the next thing I remember is my friend waking me up. We had landed in Lahore. The excitement levels were quite high as we got into our cab. Our hotel was just half an hour drive away from the airport. The weather was amazing. The city was alive with people going in different directions. Yes I admit, I instantly fell in love with Lahore. Our first trip was to the Lahore fort and the Badshahi Mosque (Historical Sites In Pakistan). The two places are side by side. And as an added benefit there is a Sikh Gurdawara(Temple) very near them. My friend and I had always admired the Mughal architecture. The Lahore fort and badshahi mosque were a true example of the mughal art.
The Sheesh mahal, Alamgiri Gate, Naulakha pavilion and moti Masjid inside the fort take your breath away. The Badshahi mosque epitomizes the beauty, passion and grandeur of Mughal era perfectly. From morning to sunset we roamed the fort and badshahi mosque until our stomach’s growled in protest. The famous “Lahore food street”
