ANY EXCUSE TO SHOP
Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore, Punjab


Shoppers enjoy an evening of stall-hopping in a makeshift market on the grounds of Gaddafi Stadium. The Stadium was completed in 1959 and was initially known as Lahore Stadium. The name was changed to Gaddafi Stadium in 1974 in honour of the Libyan leader Muammar Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi. The Stadium was the venue of the 1996 Cricket World Cup final between Sri Lanka and Australia.
