  • Description:  Lahore Museum was established in 1894 in Lahore, Pakistan, and is one of the major museums of South Asia. Lahore Museum is also known as Central Museum, and is located on The Mall. ..Rudyard Kipling's father John Lockwood Kipling, was one of the famous curators of the museum and the novel Kim was set in the vicinity of the Lahore Museum. Over 250,000 visitors came to it in 2005. It is located opposite the old University Hall, a Mughal-style building on the Shahrah-e-Quaid-e-Azam. The Museum contains some fine specimens of Mughal and Sikh door-ways and wood-work and contains a large collection of paintings dating back to the Mughal, Sikh and British eras...Apart from the collection of musical instruments, ancient jewellery, textiles, pottery and armory it was amusing to see shell and other weapons used in the Indo-Pak war on display. There are also relics from the Graeco-Bactrian times as well as well as some Tibetan and Nepalese work. The other interesting thing was that the museum has a number of objects of Greco-Buddhist sculptures, Mughal and Pahari paintings on display. The Fasting Buddha is one of the unique collections of the museum. Considering that its believe that there is less tolerance to other religions, it was refreshing to see these items.
