The following day was indeed better. Baba and I welcomed the opportunity to sleep in. At about 2 p.m. we awoke to sounds of drip-drop—wait, it rained in Lahore?? We were as shocked as any other Lahori. Luckily, it stopped raining at about 3 p.m. and the sun was back. You could hardly tell it rained! The weather was cooler, of course, but it was as bright as any other day. Anyway, we booked a richshaw to Anarkali, a famous shopping area and food street. The richshaw driver offered to show us the city, and we immediately said ‘yes.’ We would finally get to explore the city, see some of its historic wonders, and appreciate its cultural wealth—all in broad daylight. Time for snap snap snap! Here are the places we visited – hope you enjoy the pictures and the descriptions of each (above).
Some other things we saw are Shalimar Gardens, the Lahore Museum, Kim’s Gun, Samadhi of Ranjit Singh, the Lahore Railway, home of Allama Iqbal, and lots of colleges and universities built under British reign.
