    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.

Definitely one of the best ways to explore a city is by foot and an even better way is to have a enthusiastic & well-versed guide with ya! I did this walking tour solo and had an amazing time exploring the walled city of Lahore! Hashaam speaks perfect english, catered to my change in schedule, checked in before and after our tour. He further helped me plan my trip stay in lahore and made other amazing recommendations tailored to my needs. Thanks a whole bunch Hashaam and wish you well on your adventures!!
