This beauteous city is also known as the Cultural Heart of Pakistan; it hosts most of the arts, cuisine, festivals, music, film-making, gardening and intellectuals of the country. Furthermore, Lahore is the principal center of literary, educational and cultural activities of Pakistan; 80% of Pakistan’s books are published there. Lahore contains some stunning examples of Mughal architecture that are major tourist attractions, such as the Badshahi Mosque (Masjid), the Lahore Fort, Shalimar Gardens, and the mausoleums of Jehangir and Nur Jahan. There are also numerous temples, mosques, shrines and churches there too.
The purpose of this time lapse video is to give people an experience of gorgeous Lahore. The first sequence is a time lapse video. The ones following it are many sequences highlighting several places.
A famous saying in Urdu is “Lhor Lhor Aye”(Lahore Lahore Aye) meaning Lahore is Lahore. This short but apt phrase encompasses all that is unique about unparalleled Lahore. Another famous saying in Punjabi is “Jinney Lore (Lahore) Nai Way-kay-ya, O Jamiya Hi Nai”. This one means that: Whoever hasn’t seen Lahore, is not (truly) born. Or rather it means that if you haven’t been to Lahore, then you have majorly missed out.
