About WCLA

Lahore, with its glorious past, has historically played the role of one of the most vibrant and colorful cities of South Asia. Today Lahore maintains its identity as the cultural capital of Pakistan. The Walled City of Lahore is the living cultural hub nucleus of Pakistan with Asia’s largest markets, World Heritage Sites, Landmark Monuments, Traditional Bazaars, Enticing Food and Cuisines, Havelis and Museums. Amidst the narrow winding streets and the koochas of the Walled City there is a great hustle and bustle of life. It’s the City that never sleeps. To save the dilapidating heritage and culture of the walled city of Lahore, the World Bank with the Government of Punjab launched a project “Sustainable Development of Walled City Lahore Project” in 2006 and Aga Khan Trust for Culture was brought on board in 2007 for its execution and technical assistance.

The legal framework for an authority was a part of the project and the legislation was formed as Walled City of Lahore Authority Act. This ACT was approved by the provincial cabinet and was published in the gazette on 18th April 2012. Thus, the Walled City of Lahore Authority, an autonomous body, was established in 2012 by the Government of Punjab, to work for the preservation, conservation and administration of the old city.

OBJECTIVES OF WCLA:

Establish a comprehensive legal framework and specialized institutions for conserving the heritage (tangible and intangible) of the Walled City of Lahore. Enhance the quality of life for residents by streamlining business activities and commercial operations. Promote tourism and highlight the unique aspects of the Walled City of Lahore.
