Lahore (/ləˈhɔər/; Punjabi:لہورALA-LC: Lahor[ləhoːr]; Urdu:لاہورALA-LC: Lāhor[lɑːhoːr]) is the capital city of the province of Punjab, the second largest metropolitan area in Pakistan and 16th most populous city in the world. It is an important historical centre in South Asia. With a rich history dating back over a millennium, Lahore is a main cultural centre of the Punjab region and Pakistan and is the largest Punjabi city in the world. One of the most densely populated cities in the world, Lahore remains an economic, political, transportation, entertainment, and educational hub of Pakistan.
For a very long time this bird was bred in the present area of Lahore, Pakistan. It was imported into Germany around 1880 and became popular among pigeon enthusiasts at the beginning of the 1960s. They are usually found in the area of Iran (Shiraz) and are some of the most colorful pigeons. These ornamental pigeons from ancient Persia were once bred for their meat, but today they are raised for their beautiful plumage and colorful patterns. Their calm and gentle natures also make them delightfully tame pets.
The Lahore is large for a pigeon, approximately 10.5inches tall and 11.5 long. From shoulder to shoulder, it measures 5.5inches. Its markings are also unusual: the base color is white, with a secondary color beginning at the juncture of beak and wattle and spreading in an arc over the eyes and across the back and wings. The rump and tail are to be white, though in pigeon shows the majority of attention is paid to the quality of the head, neck, and wing markings.
The village was named in the 1800s by the owner of a general store, after reading a book about India.
Purchase of lands
Noor Naghmi, son of Pakistani broadcaster Abul Hasan Naghmi, brought the American Lahore to the news in 2007. The junior Naghmi, is a financial services professional in Vienna, Virginia. After a years long negotiation with farmer Nancy Wallace, who owned 235 acres (0.95km2) of American Lahore (including the center of the town), Naghmi was able to strike a deal for 3 million dollars.
Noor Naghmi's plan
Naghmi told the Washington Post in 2007 that his 3 million dollar deal will turn Lahore, Virginia into a regional tourist attraction for South Asians and others. His plans include a banquet hall fashioned after his hometown’s famous Shalimar Gardens. He also envisions a library and a museum dedicated to the histories of both Lahores. He wants to open a bed-and-breakfast place to serve chickpea curry alongside eggs and toast. He wants to organize Basant with all its fanfare and pomp in the American Lahore.
