Tongas were used to be the main means of transportation of old times. The Walled City Of Lahore had seen a lot number of Tongas since old times. It comprised a horse with a cart to carry people from one place to another.
History of Tonga Culture:
The history of Tonga Culture is very old. It was used hundreds of years ago. Previously before partition, it was a symbol of wealth and pride for the people. It was the safest and eco-friendly ride.
Then with the times, Tonga Culture started to vanish from the country and now it is 90% gone. But thanks to the Walled City Of Lahore, it is the actual saviour of our culture and tradition. You can see Tongas nowhere in Pakistan but in Lahore.
Forgetting Our Values:
A country is known and represented in the world by its culture and traditions. The nations that forget their roots and try to follow the footsteps of other nations become deprived of their identities and position.
Same is happening nowadays in our country. The people are ashamed to accept their root culture. They are happier in following the West hollow culture. A ban was imposed on Tonga Culture many years back because the nation finds it useless. It was an issue of major concern.
The Walled City Of Lahore- Saviour:
Lahoris have earned this name and respect. They have always proved that they are worth the hype.
Back in 2005, they waive off the ban on Tongas and now Tonga Culture is back in the game.
Tongas- The ride Of Nawabs:
Tongas and baggis were known to be the ride of Nawabs. It is the pride of Lahore. Lahoris have strived hard to maintain the same level.
The Lahori Nawabs are back to rock the world by following their root traditions.
Piece Of Art:
Tongas Culture has made a major come back. You can see tongas everywhere in Lahore and can book them for the tour of Lahore. They are not ordinary looking boring Tongas but are very unique and fascinating.
Their chic, exotic and vibrant look can make you spellbound. Just by a glance, anyone can find true colors of Pakistani Culture and Traditions.
The hangings, bells, and hand painted rickshaws are nonetheless a piece of art. This is what we can call a masterpiece.
