Improvements made[edit]

Add virtual university of pakistan(vu)govt. of pakistan) in universities of lahore.

I've added/replaced some pictures, to help show a better face of Lahore. Some remaining pictures may also need to be changed or added with better ones (such as for the Horse and Cattle Show, airport, parks, stadia and cultural events). Let's try to get the best one's available before inserting them at random. I've also rearranged their alignment to improve the format, as per earlier comment. In the text, I've modified the list of famous roads to make it more complete and informative for a first-time user (otherwise, just street names are useless), and edited the para on the restaurants and food street.

Hope this improves the page. If I've missed out on any copyright info on the images, please provide it so that they are not automatically deleted.

Thanks,

PakBoy

History section

I fixed up the history portion a little. Removed the rudyard kipling reference under history- it was pretty much picked up off the main kipling article and was irrelevant to the history of the city.. if at all it should be mentioned under culture (or the famous lahoris section but that's been removed) but I couldn't really see where it fits in. Also added dates for sikh rule (1799-1849). added cricket world cup in 1996. If anyone has any other ideas for historical events please do add. and someone please fix the Nightlife subheading.. its rather funny but not appropriate.

Offer to take pictures from a resident of Lahore: name your interest[edit]

Wikipedia has received an OTRS ticket (OTRS ticket # 2015091210008907) from a local in Lahore eager to be assigned some subjects for photographs— if anyone knows of historical or cultura subject matter in Lahore that could use some additional pictures, please either ping me here in a message by typing [[user:KDS4444]] somewhere in your message or leave me a note on my talk page and I will pass the request along to him. Offers like this are uncommon, especially from places as remote as inland Pakistan. To me, this seems like a great and rare opportunity, and I hope someone will want take advantage of it! Please let me know. Thank you! KDS4444Talk 01:49, 13 September 2015 (UTC)

country[edit]

The first line reads about "the country", no naming such a country.--157.92.4.76 (talk) 19:37, 11 December 2015 (UTC)  Done: "the country" →‎ Pakistan. Apuldram (talk) 21:47, 11 December 2015 (UTC)

Red question icon with gradient background.svg No, the link did not connect to a relevant site. Not to worry. I have changed the link in the article now. Apuldram (talk) 18:06, 11 June 2016 (UTC)

Area of Lahore[edit]

Area of Lahore is close to 550sq.km. The article says it's 1770sq.km. And it references a link but there is not page found on the reference link. Can someone please check and correct this. Thanks ! :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 182.189.210.78 (talk) 14:03, 11 August 2016 (UTC)


Better/more sources needed=[edit]

I've been trying to edit the article and unify the writing style so it doesnt feel so disjointed. I've noticed that lots of stuff in this article has no citation, or has really old citations. Updated/inserted references would be helpful.Willard84 (talk) 07:27, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

Don't be shy about removing material that is unsourced or very badly sourced if it strikes you as unnecessary or seriously flawed. That's part of the editing process. - DavidWBrooks (talk) 15:08, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
