Lahore (/[email protected]’ho/; Punjabi pronunciation: lhwr, Urdu pronunciation: lhwr) is the capital city of the Pakistani province Punjab. It is also the 26th-largest city in the world and Pakistan's 2nd biggest city after Karachi.  Lahore, Pakistan's richest city, has an estimated GDP (PPP), of $84 billion.  It is the largest city and historic cultural centre of the greater Punjab region, and is one of Pakistan's most socially liberal, progressive, and cosmopolitan cities. 
Lahore is a city whose origins date back to antiquity. The city was ruled by many empires over its history, including Ghaznavids and Ghurids, the Ghurids, the Ghurids, the Ghurids, and the Delhi Sultanate during the medieval era. Between the 16th and 18th centuries, Lahore was at its peak of splendour and served as the capital for many years. In 1739, the Afsharid ruler Nader Khan captured the city. After that, the city fell into decay and was contested by the Afghans as well as the Sikhs. In the early 19th century, Lahore became the capital city of the Sikh Empire and regained some its lost glory.  Lahore became the capital of British Punjab after it was annexed by the British Empire.  Lahore played a central role in the independence movements of Pakistan and India. It was the location of the declaration of Indian Independence and the resolution calling to establish Pakistan. It was the scene of some of the most violent rioting in the Partition period that preceded Pakistan's independence.  Lahore, Pakistan's capital, was named the capital of Punjab after the Pakistan Movement's success and the subsequent partition of British India.
