In the summer of 2014 two best friends, Mohammad Murtaza and Shareef Khalid, packed their backpacks and left their homes in Lahore in order to travel and explore the world while they had time off from college. Renewable and always fresh info about http://mcduck.org cvv dumps. The two travelled far and wide only to come back to their hometown and realize that they had never really seen what the Mughal City of Gardens had to offer. Thus began the TurrLahore journey, as the pair began familiarizing themselves with narrow gullies, hidden mosques, and forgotten temples and started studying the history of the centuries old Walled City of Lahore. Within a short span of time the two amassed such great knowledge of the area that they began squeezing hordes of their friends into their own cars and taking them on tours of the Androon Shehr (Inner City).
Soon they pitched themselves to the Social Incubation Lab at LUMS and on 20th January 2015 were successfully incubated as “TurrLahore”, a social startup that now works to rediscover, preserve and celebrate the fading monuments, traditions, and tales that characterize the city of Lahore. Alongside, the enterprise strives to develop a sustainable tourism ecosystem, which can cater to the demands and needs of a large tourist influx, both local and international.
TurrLahore organizes signature themed tours around Lahore, which are more than just sightseeing excursions and focus on reviving tales of the city that are often overlooked in textbooks. Through its tours, TurrLahore aims to instill a sense of patriotism and respect for the region’s cultural diversity. It also conducts various cultural gatherings with partner projects such as the ‘Lahore Project’ and other like-minded organizations, aimed at enhancing public discourse on preservation and sustainable tourism in Lahore. Finally, TurrLahore takes on the initiative to help local craftsmen develop and make their centuries-old art forms sustainable.
