Lahore (Urdu, Punjabi: لاہور) is the second largest city of Pakistan and the capital of Punjab. Lahore has a history dating back to thousands of years. It is often referred to as the Garden of the Mughals due to its rich heritage from the Mughal Empire. Historians have recorded the city for its "impressive temples, large markets and huge orchards," many of which still continue to exist as monuments today.
