Heritage & Monuments


Pakistan / Asia

Minar-e-Pakistan is a national monument built between 1960 and 1968 to mark the spot where the All-India Muslim League passed the Lahore Resolution on 23 March 1940.  This was the first official call for a separate independent homeland for the Muslims of British India.  It led to the creation of the independent state of Pakistan in 1947.  The tower was designed by Nasreddin Murat-Khan (1904-70) and this was his masterpiece.  The tower, a concrete modernist structure, rises 62 metres from its base.  It faces the Badshahi Mosque.
