Scope of the Project

The creation of Pakistan was a miracle of twentieth century and its architect is no other than Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.

Pakistan is now 63 years old but unfortunately, we as a nation, could not construct a building which truly matches the stature of our great leader. It is the need of the hour to familiarize our nation particularly the younger generation with the Person of Quaid-i-Azam who changed the map of the world to our benefit. In this context, Nazaria-i-Pakistan Trust decided to construct Aiwan-i-Quaid-i-Azam at Johar Town, Lahore.

The land for the construction of Aiwan-i-Quaid-i-Azam was purchased by Nazaria-i-Pakistan Trust from Lahore Development Authority in 1992-93. Its total area is 48 Kanals and the covered area of Aiwan-i-Quaid-i-Azam would be 224,845 SFT. The estimated cost of this project would be Rs. 636 million.

Aiwan-i-Quaid-i-Azam will serve as a repository of the freedom movement and will act as an educational and research center for disseminating the thoughts and achievements of Quaid-i-Azam. The complex will be a centre for endless motivation activities throughout the year.
