Pakistan is a country of diversity. It has different ethnic groups living in different set of environment speaking different languages and have different cultures. If you want to have a glimpse of rich and diverse cultural heritage of Pakistan at one place, Lok Virsa (Urdu name for the words 'Traditional Heritage') is the place to be.

A collection of heritages from all five provinces of Pakistan. Good place for shopping local handicrafts and trying different food flavors. Ideal time is to visit in evening looks even better with lights on.
