Whenever a Lahori (one who lives in Lahore) thinks of outing, he has one thing in mind ‘where to go to eat’. On some occasions like Eid, people were looking for something more then eating.
When you look around the Lahore city, you’ll get many historical landmarks where one can go. Those who live here has got bore with that and want something new, something modern.
I’m amazed to see that people from whole city come to Bahria Town Lahore to visit. They came here to visit the Grand Jamia Masjid and Eiffel Tower.
On Eid days our Bahria Town Lahore is full with people wandering around Grand Jamia Masjid and Eiffel Tower. Entrance of Bahria Town get choked due to load of traffic. Good thing is that, now we have more places in Lahore to hangout.
Bahria Town management has set a small fee for the playing area in Safari Villas. They have also increased the badminton nets to accommodate more people.
This playing area is set in parking area of Safari Mall or Green Valley Super Store in Safari Villas.
Earlier it was free of cost now Bahria has start to charge a little fee for it.
Bahria Town is charging Rs. 1,000/- per month for badminton.
Tennis have a different fee, which I remember is Rs. 5,000/- per month.
If Bahria Town is charging fee then it should provide the proper environment for these games. Badminton is not an outdoor game and Tennis is not played on road. Why are you charging fee then?
Fee has only done one good that crowd has vanished. Now you don’t have to wait long for your turn.
Bahria Town is arranging a pet show in Cricket academy, BB block, Sector D, Bahria Town, Lahore.

Bahria Town Lahore has the third largest Eiffel Tower of the world after Paris and China. Paris has the original one, the real wonder. Eiffel Tower in Paris has height of 300 meters. Second in China has the height of 100 meters and here in Bahria Town, we have the third one with height of 80 meters. It is almost a 100 feet taller than Minar-e-Pakistan (which is considered as a high tower in Lahore).
Bahria has celebrated the new year at Eiffel Tower and opened it at that time. Afterward they close it and planned to open it from Monday onward.
Eiffel Tower has three stops on it
- Coffee Place
- Viewing Deck (top)
It will have a small ticket to move up on that elevator which is expected to around Rs. 100 to Rs. 300. It will be confirmed by tomorrow.
This is the monument of its kind in Lahore. I guess whole Lahore will come to visit that monument and it will be a wonderful place to have a dinner on the top of Eiffel Tower.
Share your experience at Eiffel Tower of Bahria Town Lahore in comments below. Enjoy…
Bahria is celebrating new year night at Eiffel Tower. It would be also the official opening of Eiffel Tower plus there would lot more entertainment stuff as well. Bahria has said to arrange a musical concert and fireworks. It will start at 8:30 pm.
Huge gathering is expected at this opening ceremony of Eiffel Tower. There would be lot of problem at the parking. I hope Bahria will do some arrangement for that.
Residence of Bahria can easily approach over there. It is free for families. This message indicate that Bahria is promoting only families for this event.
Masjid in Jinnah block is now active. It has been couple of weeks to start proper nmaz in it. Juma prayer is not said in this masjid, that is in Grand masjid.
There are less people to pray in this masjid at the moment because there isn’t any possession in Jinnah block yet. This masjid is in between Jinnah block and Rafi block, so many people known this masjid with the name of Rafi block Masjid.
This active masjid is also a positive sign in giving the possession of Jinnah block. It seems that possession is very near.
Well this masjid is very beautiful. It has fountains and large parking area. Though it is designed as per Qurtaba masjid in Safari Villas, Bahria Town Lahore. No pillars, round in shape. Have nice calligraphy on ceiling. It also has a room for Islamic classes which they might start in near future.
Mufti Shakeel is Imam of the masjid. He is the same Moulana who was firstly Imam of Ali block masjid and then CC block masjid.
Let us pray there so that masjid will also give our witness in hereafter.
Park in Johar block is said to become a polo ground. Machinery is working in great speed. According to Bahria Town workers, this ground will be completed before end of this year 2015.
Effect On Plots:
This thing will also effect the prices of plot in Johar block. Normally people don’t like plots in front of playing grounds. This thing happened in BB block, Sector D as well. Where Bahria has planned to give ‘Mini Golf Ground’ and then they started a cricket academy. Firstly facing mini golf ground was considered as a good location but it becomes opposite in case of cricket ground.
Other Point Of View:
Well above was about the rates of Johar block facing that ground. Otherwise this Polo Ground will add another feature in Bahria Town Lahore. It is quite possible that people who love to play that sports would like to buy plots in front of this ground. Moreover that ground will give a pleasant look from the terrace of houses and people start liking it.
Well in any case we’ll have a great another game to play in Bahria Town.
Firstly there was only one gym in Bahria Town. That gym was of the society itself. Now we have two more private gyms in Bahria Town Lahore.
One is with the name of ‘Cuts’ in Umer block commercials. It is in basement of 8 marla corner commercial building. Fee is Rs. 1500/- (gents) and Rs. 1800/- (ladies). Good thing is that it is also opened in morning time. Bahria Gym don’t open in morning for gents.
Second gym is with the name of ‘Fab’ in Sector C commercial zone, backside of girls hostel. It is on first floor of a 5 marla commercial building. I’ve seen that gym equipment yesterday and it seems that they are installing it nowadays and will be open soon. Let’s see what their package would be.
More details will soon to follow…
