Mochi Pura is a Mohalla in Lahore, Pakistan. It has a population of about 10,000 people. More than half of them are not permanent citizens of Lahore, i.e., students living in rented rooms or families working in nearby wealthy areas like Model Town and Faisal Town.
As typical with the third world city's downtown, most of the living necessities are below standard in Mochi Pura. Although it is densely populated, it has an insufficient sewerage system, water supply system and power supply system.
Once in a year, Urs/Mela at the local Mizar related to Baba Dulla is celebrated with great enthusiasm. Participation of children in the mela is worth looking. However, Charas and Bhang is consumed in large quantities at the occasion. Higher authorities might have some other more important issues to resolve.
There are four important mosques in Mochi Pura namely Masjid Noor, Madina Masjid, Rehman Masjid and a small but beautiful Ma'raj Masjid.
