…sunset near Khayaban-e-Iqbal…


Khayaban-e-Iqbal meets up with Walton Road, and leads you into the Defense Housing Authority turf of Lahore. Pictured above is a roundabout known as “Ghora Chowk” (ghora means horse in Urdu). I pass by here often ,and it never looks better then at dusk.


Here you can see the same roundabout in the foreground and the sun cozying up to the well-known Packages plant in the background.


Hundreds, possibly thousands of vehicles,bikes,and pedestrians travel here daily. I won’t say this is the most picturesque area of Lahore, but its certainly characteristic of the city.

    Gorgeous. I have been waiting to take a picture of ghora chowk for the past two weeks, it looks so lovely when I pass by it on my way home every evening. But the car never stops and I just end up looking at it myself. :) Thanks for posting the picture.

    Maleeha, I am glad you feel the same way! It think its something about ones regular route, there are certain spots that one look forwards to seeing, just because we are used to it.
