ⓘ Origins of Lahore

A legend based on oral traditions holds that Lahore, known in ancient times as Lavapuri City of Lava in Sanskrit, was founded by Prince Lava, the son of Sita and Rama, Kasur was founded by his twin brother Prince Kusha. To this day, Lahore Fort has a vacant Lava temple dedicated to Lava also pronounced Loh, hence Loh-awar or "The Fort of Loh".

The oldest authentic document about Lahore was written anonymously in 982. It is called Hudud-I-Alam the regions of the world. In 1927 it was translated into English by Vladimir Fedorovich Minorsky and published in Lahore. In this document, Lahore is a small city called Shehr with "impressive temples, large markets and huge orchards". It refers to "two major markets around which dwellings exist", and he also mentions "the mud walls that enclose these two dwellings to make it one." The original document is now in the British Museum. Lahore was called by different names throughout history. To date there is no conclusive evidence of when it was founded. Some historians have traced the history of the city 4.000 years ago. However, historically it is proved that Lahore is at least 2.000 years. Lying on the main trade routes and for the invasion of South Asia, Lahore was ruled and plundered a number of dynasties and hordes.
