 Minar-e Pakistan:

 

The Minar-e-Pakistan or “Pakistan Day Memorial” has been erected as a monument in commemoration of the Lahore Resolution in Iqbal Park. This is the site where in 1940 the Muslim League held its historic 34th annual session and demanded a separate homeland for Muslims.

The base of the tower is raised approximately 4m. From the ground. It rises up to approximately 13m. Forming a sculpted, flower-like base. From this point it tapers as it rises. The base platform is shaped like a 5-point star and it encloses crescent shaped pools.

The overall height of the monument is approximately 60m. It is constructed in re-inforced concrete, all poured in-situ. The floors and walls are rendered in stone and marble.

It is located in Andoorne Lahore. It is a good place to visit the historical place.
