Mazaar-e-Iqbal

by Pakistan - پاکستø§Ù† November. 11, 2007 6696 views

The Tomb of Allama Muhammad Iqbal (Urdu: مزار اقبال; Mazaar-e-Iqbal) is a simple but impressive structure located in Lahore, Pakistan in the Hazuri Bagh lawn between the Badshahi Mosque and the Lahore Fort where both the grand structures (the Mosque and the Fort) face each other. Official guard is maintained by Pakistan Rangers. The architecture reflects a combination of Afghan and Moorish styles and is entirely constructed of red sandstone. Hundreds of visitors come to the mausoleum every day to pay their respects to the poet-philosopher. He was one of the major inspirations behind the Pakistan Movement, and is revered in Pakistan as Muffakir-e-Pakistan (The Thinker of Pakistan) or Shair-e-Mashriq (The Poet of the East). Iqbal died on April 21, 1938 in Lahore at the age of 60. - wiki [en.wikipedia.org]
