    Mochi Gate

    Lahore is a historical city located in Punjab, Pakistan. Origin of Lahore city is not known. A section of city Lahore is known as Walled City of Lahore, “Old City” or “Androon Shehr”. It is called walled city because during the Mughal era a city wall fortified it.   There were thirteen gates in the Walled City of Lahore and Mochi Gate was one of them. In 1849 when British came to Punjab, they destroyed almost all the gates except the Roshnai Gate. Out of thirteen only 6 gates survived. Mochi Gate is one of the gates that do not exist now but that area of Old City still calls mochi gate, Lahore.   Mochi gate is locally known as Mochi Darwaza. A prominent landmark is “Laal Haveli” and this gate used to exit next to this Haveli. Word Mochi in Urdu is used for cobbler that shows that this area might was the market of shoes and repair shops. Another story related to the name of this gate is that that the initial name of this gate was Moti gate. In Mughal era Moti was a guard who looked after the gate all of his life. Later name Moti distorted and became Mochi.   More likely, the name was originated from Morchi an Urdu word used for a long and narrow ditch dug by the soldiers to provide a place of shelter from enemy. It could be the origin because during pre Mughal rule units of troops were stationed here. Other facts that go in the support of this origin are the names of some streets that are not changed as Mohalla Teer-Garan means arrow craftsmen and Mohallah Kaman-Garan meas bow craftsmen.     Inside the Mochi Gate there is Mohalla Shia. Shias are the member of an Islamic sect. Moharram is the first lunar month of Islamic calendar and Shias gather every year here and arrange majalis (religious gathering) to memorialize the martyrdom of Hazrat imam Hussain a.s the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Many Imam Barghas are situated here in the form of Haveli. Havilis like Nisar Havili, Laal Haveli, Haveli Wajid Ali Shah and Mubarak Haveli are from some of the masterpieces of Mughal architecture that can be found here. Mochi gate is also popular for the dried fruit, kites and firework shops. All the area within this gate is so congested and most of the streets are so narrow that it is not possible for the two people to walk parallel in the street.

    Mohenjo-daro

    Mohenjo-daro was one of the largest city-settlements of the Indus Valley Civilization of South Asia. It is in the province of Sindh, Pakistan. The name Mohenjo-Daro, meaning “Mound of the Dead Men,” is a modern one, as the original city was anything but. Spreading over an area of 300 hectares (about 750 acres) with a peak population of about 40,000, Mohenjo-Daro was one of the largest and most advanced cities in the world during its time. Laid out in a rectilinear grid and built out of baked bricks, the city featured a complex water management system, complete with a sophisticated drainage and covered sewer system, and baths in nearly every house. The original name of the city is forgotten, although one scholar speculates it may have been Kukkutarma, or “The City of the Cockerel” (a.k.a., Rooster City). The uniform size of the manufactured bricks used to build Mohenjo-Daro, the discovery of standardized weights and measures used to facilitate trade, the considerable degree of civil engineering and urban planning evident in the city’s development, and the fact these characteristics are shared with other Indus-Sarasvati Valley sites (most notably Harappa, the first site to be excavated) suggest a highly organized civilization with bureaucratic coordination of things like construction and commerce. Given that, it is perhaps puzzling to note that Mohenjo-Daro does not seem to feature any palaces, temples, monuments, or anything else indicative of a seat of governing power. The city’s largest structures are things like public baths (including one that had an underground furnace to heat the pools), assembly halls, a marketplace, ancient apartment buildings, and the aforementioned sewer system — all things that suggest an emphasis on an orderly, clean, and modest civil society. Built around 2500 BCE, Mohenjo-Daro — like the rest of the Indus Valley Civilization — went into sudden decline for unknown reasons in 1900 BCE and was subsequently abandoned possibly because of the drying up of a major Sarawati River. After its rediscovery in the 1920s, a few decades of excavations were ultimately discovered to be exposing the ancient structures to considerably weather damage, and all further archaeological work on the site was halted in 1966; today, only salvage excavations, surface surveys, and conservation projects are allowed.

    Qutb-ud-din Aibak's Tomb

    Many would have walked around the busy streets of Anarkali in Lahore buying or window shopping. But perhaps few would have known that in one of the streets of Anakarli Bazaar lies buried Emperor Qutb ud Din Aibak, considered to be the first Muslim ruler of South Asia and builder of the famous Qutab Minar in Delhi, which is considered as the tallest brick minaret in the world. Qutb-ud-din Aibak was born in Turk family of Central Asia. As a child he was captured sold as a slave, but was lucky to be purchased by one of the chieftains of Nishapur, who treated him like one of his own sons. Aibak received good education and was trained in the field of archery and horsemanship. However, upon death of chief Qazi, he was sold once again by the sons of the dead chief. As the luck would have had it, the famous Muhammad Ghauri bought him and became an instant favourite of his new master because of his exceptional character and qualities. Thereafter, Aibak steadily rose through the ranks and eventually became a General. Like Ghauri, Aibak performed his greatest deeds while still a subordinate. He was responsible for most of the conquests of Northern India and was appointed as Ghauri's Viceroy to Delhi. When Ghuri died in 1206, the Turkish Amirs and Generals elected Aibak as the new Sultan. It was he who shifted the capital first from Ghazni to Lahore, and then from Lahore to Delhi, and thus is considered as the first Muslim ruler of South Asia.
