Filmed by me, Abdul Nusrat, at Lohari gate in Lahore, Pakistan with a canon 7d.
The Lohari or Lahori Gate is located within Walled City of Lahore in Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. Lahori and the bazaar behind it comprises the oldest arterial route in the Walled City built by Akbar the great. Qutbuddin Aibak, the first Muslim ruler of the Subcontinent is buried just outside this gate. Caravans & travellers coming from Multan used to enter the city from this gate. Behind Lohari Gate also, once stood a brick fort called Kacha Kot probably the first fortified city of Lahore founded by Malik Ayyaz. Among the few city gates which British Government cared to reconstruct, only Lohari Gate retained its original form. During Mughal period, the two famous divisions of the Walled City, namely Guzar Bahar Khan and Guzar Machhi Hatta, were served by this Gate. During the anarchaic rule of the 18th century, all the city gates, except Lohari Gate & two others were walled up.
