Visit Lahore’s Historical sites with Ghumo


Lahore’s architecture is one of the best in Pakistan. The buildings, the forts and the mosques are from times as old as the Mughal era. Lahoris have managed to preserve their architectural history over the centuries and till date, people still visit these monuments.

When you book with Ghumo and decide to reside with a mezban, it will surely benefit you when they decide to share their own knowledge and information with you regarding their area and city. You cannot get this sort of insight anywhere else, it is only the mezbans who can give you in depth knowledge about their city including all the historical sites. 





One of the best is the Lahore Fort. To this date, schools still take their students to this exceptional fort where the Mughals once resided. The people of Lahore occasionally take a little trip here from time to time as well because one simply cannot get enough of the beauty this fort holds. And for those who are visiting from other cities, it is a must for them to visit this attraction, which is spread over 20 hectares. It also consists of elephant-shaped columns in the buildings which were influenced by the Hindus during Emperor Akbar’s time. Nonetheless, visiting such an attraction is not only a reflection of the great monuments the city consists of but also, is an educational experience as to how the first ever Muslim rulers lived.


Another historical landmark is the Shalimar Garden, which again dates back to the Mughal era. It is constructed in a unique manner, not like any other garden. Over the years, this along with the Lahore Fort have become the most visited tourist destination in Lahore. This was proven to be true when UNESO mentioned both of these attractions in the list of the World Heritage Sites in the 1970’s.

Moving on, Badshahi Masjid is another well-known historical landmark that every mezban will surely know of. Located west of the Lahore Fort in the hub of Old Lahore, this Masjid is always packed with people who cannot get enough of this iconic attraction. It has the capacity to hold up to 100,000 people which clearly shows it is not like any other mosque. The pinnacles of the masjid can also be viewed from afar especially from a nearby eatery by the name of Coco’s Den. The vastness of it is a treat in itself, not the mention that praying in this magnificent mosque gives a surreal experience and a lot of nikkahs are performed under the roof of the Badshahi Masjid as well.

Chauburji is another historical landmark situated in the Chauburji Park. The building is extremely old, dated back to the Mughal era time period. The monument has not been as well maintained as the others have, however, the intricate detail of the architecture is worth visiting it.
The last historical destination one must visit when they are in Lahore, is the Wazir Khan Mosque, also located in Walled City. It was set up during Emperor Shah Jehan’s reign in the 17th century. The mosque is distinguished by its intricate tile work known as kashi-kari, as well as its interior surfaces that are almost entirely embellished with elaborate Mughal-era frescoes.

Every mezban in Lahore will know of these tourist destinations without a doubt and because living with one gives you the freedom to travel with some background knowledge, you will surely enjoy visiting them more.

A Student’s Diary: Traveling on a budget in Pakistan

All students, whether they are in school or university, at some point, plan to travel the northern areas with their friends. I, myself have planned numerous trips throughout my educational years. But also, like most students, I am too, constrained by a budget. It would be utterly preposterous to spend around Rs. 30,000 or more on a few days’ trip with friends, keeping in mind that school and universities fees already cost so much.
One ought to think that since a group of friends are going on vacation together, the cost might be less. However, with inflation increasing ten-fold, nothing is cheap nowadays! Certainly not any sort of vacation.
During my trip to the northern areas of Gilgit, it was remotely difficult to accommodate everyone regarding the final amount of the trip. This was because most students did not find the cost feasible as it was only a short trip and the costs of hiring transportation along with the living situation exceeded the estimated cost. Most of the expenditure…

Pakistan’s mehmaan nawazi

Pakistan, as a society takes pride in their mehmaan nawazi skills. They are hospital people, who look forward hosting get-togethers at their homes. These events can be luncheons, dinners, hi-teas and even traditional events such as dholkis, mendhi’s and so much more. These are just a few examples of a short-time period commitment. However, when the hospitality does not stop here. It is extended when guests decide to reside in their homes temporarily as well.

And this is exactly, why Ghumo has decided to launch a platform, giving the Pakistani society the opportunity to showcase their skills and in return, earn an income.
To think that this is an extremely difficult task, one is mistaken. When having guests over, you do have to provide eatables for them, have to entertain them, keep them company throughout, yet, this is not the case when it comes to people renting out rooms or properties through Ghumo.
These renters simply need a place to stay and everything else that is provided is a …
