The Cathedral Church of the Resurrection aka Lahore Cathedral is an Anglican cathedral in the heart of Lahore, Pakistan. It was built on The Mall in 1887, opposite the Lahore High Court. It was consecrated on January 25, 1887.

It is the seat of the Diocese of Lahore, of the Church of Pakistan. The cathedral is in the Neo-Gothic style of architecture. It was originally built out of pink sandstone by architect John Oldrid Scott. In 1898, two towers with tall steeples were added to the building, but the steeples were taken down after the earthquake of 1911.

The Cathedral Church is commonly referred to by Lahoris as Kukar Girja because of a weather cock that was mounted on the central lantern, one of the highest points.
