Alhamra is the heart of Lahore as Lahore is the cultural capital of the country. Alhamra is basically an Arabic word, which literally means a woman in “Red Clothes”. This was the name initially given to the Royal enclave at Cordoba Spain by the Arabs. The palaces and other buildings were constructed in red bricks. The idea of constructing buildings of this style for an Arts Council was conceived by our illustrious Architect Mr. Nayyar Ali Dada
Al Hamra Arts Complex is officially a cultural promotion center. It is doing its job pretty well as it a seat of theater in Lahore. One gets to watch all kinds of plays ranging from local comedies to English classics. One has to get informed in time to get a booking on the right time if something of your taste is being staged.
there are many complexes purposely buit for musical and theatre shows..the main halls are big enough to accomodate aboue 1000 people at a time;some time people feel parking problem.there are no dinning facilities.local crowd makes the complexes very enjoyable
This is one of several theaters in Lahore where you can go and watch live plays & performances. Live dramas are performed which reflect the culture of Punjab. Its fun to watch a live play in this theater. Overall a good place to be if you are fun loving, outgoing sort of a person.
