The Minar-e-Pakistan is a tall concrete structure in Iqbal Park in Lahore, Pakistan. The name means Tower of Pakistan in Urdu. This is the site where in 1940, seven years before the formation of Pakistan, the Muslim League passed the Lahore Resolution in which the need for a separate homeland for the Muslims of India was originally recognised. The Minar-e-Pakistan was designed by Murad Khan. The base of the tower is raised approximately four metres from the ground. It rises up to approximately 13m. forming a sculpted, flower-like base. From this point it tapers as it rises. The base platform is shaped like a five-pointed star and it encloses crescent shaped pools. The overall height of the monument is approximately sixty metres. It is constructed of re-inforced concrete
