–Shahi Hammam also holds UNESCO merit award
LAHORE: Renowned British historian and the author of The Last Mughal, William Dalrymple, terms the architectural restoration of Shahi Hamam the best in the South Asia. The Walled City Lahore Authority (WCLA), since its inception, has been continuously putting in efforts to restore the flavour of history in the magnificent buildings of the royal era. Shahi Hammam also won the UNESCO award of merit.
That’s not it, the Punjab government, in addition to water management system, stormwater drainage system, sewerage, underground electrical works, natural gas distribution system and underground electrical works, has successfully restored the aura of wonderfully built architectural patterns. This is one of the finest examples of historical building restoration in the South Asia.
Royal Trail, Gali Surjan Singh and Delhi gate are some of the breathtaking sights after restoration.
