Walled City lahore Authority

Inside the Alamgiri Gate is a temple famously known as the temple of Raja Loh, who, according to Hindu religion, was the son of Rama and Sita. It is argued that the historic city of Lahore was founded by none other than Loh.

It is said that Sita gave birth to twin sons, Lava and Kusha and 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 whereas the city of Kasur was founded by his twin brother Prince Kusha. So this is the connection of Loh and Lahore.


Temple of Loh was conserved by the Walled City of Lahore Authority in 2021.
