Lahore city ,, lahore

The city Lahore is capital of Punjab Province. It occupies a centralposition, and it’s generally called Heart of Pakistan. The Latitude of Lahore is 31 – 34 ’5” North And Longitude is situated 74 – 21’ East. The city is situated on the flat alluvial plain at an average altitude of 706 feet above sea level. Parts of city are situated at a slightly higher level on mounds of the debris of former cities. It’s built in form of parallelogram, the area with in the walls, exclusive of the citadel, being about 461 acres. It stands on the alluvial plain traversed by the river Ravi. The city is slightly elevated above the plain, and has a high ridge within it, running east and west on its northern side.

The whole of this elevated ground is composed of the accumulated debris of many centuries. The ricer, which makes a very circuitous bend from the East, passes in a semi-circle to the north of Lahore.At on time it flowed by the city walls; but, its encroachments have caused alarm in 1662, the Emperor Aurangzeb had a massive embankment of bricks and mortar constructed along its bank for a distance of about four miles, which saved the city from destruction. Portions of this huge work, called Band-I-Alamgiri, are still to be seen on the north east of the citadel, and village of Bhogoi – Wall. The river Ravi soon after abandoned its old channel, and has never since returned to it, though an arm of the main stream at present flows at a short distance from the fort

Lahore is city of gardens and has the reputation of being the ‘Green City’. It’s Climate is very healthy and salubrious. Except for some days in the summer Lahore is a pleasant place to live. Winter and places here from October to March beginning, then spring comes for a short period up to maximum April end. After that summer period set ins which go at peak in June and July although these two months are also rainy. Summer season lasts in September in form of fall season, which tends to recycle --- means again winter. In September pinch of summer over and the nights become cool.Hundred years ago the city was confined to the walled city, an area of square mile only. With passage of time many far away towns become part of it, like Ichara, Saman abad, Baghban pura, Kumhiyaar pura, dharma pura, kotha pind, Sanda, Shahdera……etc.But in last decade these boundries are more expended.

The boundaries of southern area is mixing with Imamia colony which is situated at 22 km from the secretariat. Lets take an update over view of the city. Now it’s divided into 148 union councils. Actually Lahore is not grown under any specific plan. The city now comprises following regions:- River Ravi, the lower Bari Doab Canal, the railway lines and the arterial riads are important
