    Dehli Gate

    Greetings, esteemed guests. This is the beginning of our tour. The Delhi Gate. It is situated on the eastern side of the city and it faces Delhi, which was the capital of the Mughal empire. This gate was the main entrance for the Mughal royalty, who used to pass through it with their splendid entourage. The gate was guarded by loyal soldiers who opened it at dawn and closed it at dusk every day. This was a sign of respect and security for the imperial family.

Really great tour. It was my first time in Lahore and Hashaam really explained a lot about the history and showed us around some really cool places that we would have missed on our own. I highly recommend doing this tour if it’s your first time in Lahore.

We had a blast with Hashaam as he showed us around the old city. He showed a few beautiful hidden corners which we wouldn't find ourselves and he brought us to Masjid Wazeer Khan Mosque, one of the most beautiful mosques we ever saw. He also got us some tea and we had a good conversation about religion, pakistan and life. Hashaam is a very good guide and his english is super fluent. Very helpful too, since he has a lot of knowledge about traveling in Pakistan. This is not a super extensive tour about all the tourist sites of the city, but rather more about checking out some cool places and talking about Pakistan culture and lifestyle, so take that into consideration. Highly recommend!
