istanbul chowk

Everybody in Lahore knows the most Instagrammable spots in Lahore like Lahore Fort, Badshahi Masjid, Wazir Khan Mosque, Sheesh Mahal, with a list of some popular restaurants like Deja by Khadija, Maribelle, and The Poet etc. But we wanted to curate a list that offers more than just Instagram-worthy pictures, these places have history and a vibe that cannot be forgotten.

So here’s a list of top 5 Instagrammable spots in Lahore.

instagrammable spot, istanbul chowk lahore


Istanbdul Chowk is a an underrated place to take pictures, but it’s a very instagrammable place, nonetheless. It spices up the city’s cultural life with the hustle bustle of people, so the white bird cages nestled in the tea are a sight for sore eyes. Stranded between GC Lahore and NCA, you will be welcomed by the many pigeons who live there. Just make sure to time your shots if you want to catch all of them in flight.

instagrammable place, SPK


Sarak Pe Karak is a popular chai/snack place in Model Town and a very popular one. Interestingly it boasts the many varieties of art in Lahore, so you will find murals of Noor Jahan, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan sab, old cinema posters and lately, Bella Chai, which cracked me up because these people are innovative. So, Sarak Pe Karak is a palette of colors and art with Lahori’s favourite drink, karak chai!

service lane lahore


Service lane is a like a cool hangout place for you and your friends to grab a bite, chill, listen to some great music and take a lot of pictures. The ambiance, colors, art and vibe of the whole space makes it instagrammable. And with the weather change soon enough, we’d say get those content ideas in motion.

quaid-e-azam library



The grandiose and architecture of Quaid-e-Azam makes it a favourite for all types of outdoor photography, weddings, and Instagram. So we eliminated forts and the mosques and kept this place in our list. Surrounded by beautiful bagh’s and old trees that have been through so much history make this one of top locations.

sweet tooth heera mandi


Hands down, Sweet Tooth Heera Mandi is an instagrammable spot. The neon art attack, the in-your-face slogans, the double roof tops, the location and how it over looks Badshahi Masjid, no matter how many times you go there, you will find a new spot to take pictures in.
