The park accommodates Minar-e-Pakistan (Lighthouse of Pakistan), a 60 meters (198.5 feet) tall distinctive monument in the shape of a minaret that has been built in commemoration of the Lahore Resolution passed at the three-day general session (22–24 March 1940) of All India Muslim League, calling for greater Muslim autonomy in British India. The resolution became synonymous to the demand for a separate Muslim state of Pakistan.
