The city of Lahore, it turns out, has 11 twins or sister cities. Here’s the list:
1) Istanbul – Turkey. 2) Sari Won – Democratic Republic of Korea. 3) Xian – China. 4) Kortrijk – Belgium. 5) Fez – Morocco. 6) Cordoba – Spain. 7) Samarkand – Uzbekstan. 8) Isfahan – Iran. 9) Mashad – Iran. 10) Glasgow – UK. 11) Chicago – USA
To me, the above is quite a fascinating mix of metropolitans. But the question is, which of the above fits the title of “Lahore’s twin” most appropriately? and which of the above is least similar to Lahore? and why?
Also which other city (or cities) do you think should be twinned with Lahore?
As per the following news report, “Glasgow is the only city working on enhancing the ties between the two cities. It has offered training facilities to the Rescue 1122 officials besides donating firefighting vehicles.”
