Tomb of Allama Muhammad Iqbal

The Tomb of Allama Muhammad Iqbal (The poet of the East and the thinker of Pakistan) is located in Hazuri Bagh, Lahore, Pakistan, just to the left of the main entrance of Badshahi Mosque. The rectangular shaped tomb is made of red sandstones.

The architecture reflects a combination of Afghan and Moorish styles. A large number of visitors visit the mausoleum every day to offer Fatiha and pay tributes to Allama Muhammad Iqbal for his services.
