Read the proclamation from the British annexing the Punjab....incredible feeling standing in this building that was once a mausoleum and a church.

This is one of the monuments I have admired since I was in my early teens. My grandfather used to visit the Punjab Secretariat and I used to accompany him just to behold this beautiful building, which was a prototype for the grand Taj Mahal. The legend of Anarkali is stuff out which fairytales are made. Nadira Begum, a beautiful... More

Modernity is catching up at this place with repair work in progress and heritage being destroyed in the process . Sign boards with information need to shelved of religious bias and should not proclaim half baked truths as is their wont in Pakistan .

Really interesting story behind this tomb, however no photos can be taken here and we couldn't enter the tomb due to the Govenor's residence being nearby, great example of how the Pakistani and Punjabi governments don't care for tourism

I visited at Anarkali Tomb along with my friend. The tomb of Anarkali is one of the most significant buildings of the Mughal period. It is an ingeniously planned octagonal building, and is a memorial of the love-legend of Prince Saleem (later emperor Jahangir). According to a popular legend, Nadira Begum, with the title of “Anarkali” belonged to the herem... More

You don't know about Anarkali and Saleem love affair? Well Indo-Pak History 101 can't be complete without it (even though the story has been refuted by most historians). This once magnificent building ended up in the bowels of Punjab Governent administrative machinery and houses many offices. It's not an easy place to access but if you are a guest of... More

Anarkali's Tomb is located inside the Punjab Secretariat Compound near Mall Road in Lahore. The complex consists of several buildings, of which the tomb is housed in the archives building. The archives building also has a small museum where they display some of their more interesting documents, largely from the 1857 revolt. The tomb itself is modest and somewhat beat-up.... More
