Lahore Explored through the Lens of History and Fiction

  • Muhammad Karim Akhtar


Lahore has been a subject of fascination for writers and historians through the ages. They have penned down its history, architectural design and cultural activities throughout its different stages of development as a city of international fame and repute. The rule of various Emperors, Kings and Rajas over Lahore, the Rajputs, the Muslims, the Sikhs and last but not least the British have also been chronicled by the historians and researchers. Recently a new book on Lahore by Shahid Imtiaz has appeared to capture the attention of the students and scholars of both history and literature.
