    We are planning to visit Hiran Minar. Can someone tell if the pond is still full of water as in the pictures? What attractions are there if we drive from Lahore?

    Great article and well written! I Have visited Pakistan many times, and artciles such as this makes one want to go again. As a Sikh in the UK, I feel the true Punjab is in Pakistan and it is traditionally preserved!

    Just a trivia. The famous Shahi Mahalla of Lahore is also known as Mahalla Shekhupurian! Of course Shekhu was a nickname of Prince Salim who along with his courtiers regularly patronized the courtesans of Shahi Mahalla.

    I don’t think it was the Sikhs who changed the name from Jehangirabad to Sheikhupura – it was always known as Sheikhupura. The Emperor Akbar’s nickname for his son Salim was ‘Sheikhu’ (after Sheikh Salim Chishti, who has forecast the birth of Salim).
