    Default XXXX - Lahore Fort Trip - By oodbalow XXXX

    In Dec 2006 i went for a Pakistan Tour from Karachi to Peshawar by road.
    In that trip i visited many cities n places.
    Took thousands of pics. so its not possible to post all pics covering many places just in one Topic. thats why i have divided that trip in different sections n will post each section independently to show u guys every possible detail of the visited places.
    Each section contains many pics. i hope u guys will enjoy.

    Now these r the pics of Lahore Fort Trip.
    (all pics r reduced in size & quality)




    LAHORE FORT ( Shahi Qila Lahore)


    ROYAL FORT- LAHORE: Although most parts of the Royal Fort were constructed around 1566 A.D. by the Mughal Emperor, Akbar the Great, there is evidence that a mud fort was in existence here in 1021 A.D. as well, when Mahmood of Ghazna invaded this area. Akbar demolished the old mud fort and constructed most of the modern Fort, as we see it today, on the old foundations.
    The Royal Fort is rectangular. The main gates are located alongside the centre of the western and eastern walls. Every succeeding Mughal Emperor as well as the Sikhs, and the British in their turn, added a pavilion, palace or wall to the Fort. Emperor Jahangir extended the gardens and constructed the palaces that we see today in the Jehangir's Quadrangle, while Shah-Jehan added Diwan-e-Khas, Moti Masjid (Pearl Mosque) and his own Sleeping Chambers.
    Aurangzeb built the impressive main gate which faces the Hazoori Bagh lying in between the Badshahi Mosque and the Fort.
    The Famous Sheesh Mahal or Palace of Mirrors is in the north-east corner of the Fort. This is the most beautiful palace in the Fort and is decorated with small mirrors of different colours set. The part of the wall of the Elephant Steps towards the Fort's inner gate are scarred by bullet marks, bearing testimony to the Sikh Civil War of 1847 A.D.
    The Sleeping Chamber of Mai Jindan houses a very interesting museum with relics from Mughal and the Sikh periods.

    Nice photos OOd bhai. Didn't know they had a "Sleeping Chamber of Mai Jindan" in the Fort too. Look forward to seeing the photos of this area, and to visiting the Fort in the near future, insha Allah.

    Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.

    @ AbuJamal

    bhai thanx for appreciation.

    Haveli of Mai Jindan dominates the eastern periphery of the Moti Mosque Quadrangle.
    Mai Jindan, (Chandan or Chand Kaur), was the mother of the infant Sikh ruler, Dulip Singh. The two-storey building may have originally been a Mughal structure, however, it is considered a Sikh structure due to large-scale additions by the Sikhs.
    The building now houses a collection known as the Princess Bamba Collection. That was the building where during the Sikh War of succession the gruesome murder of Rani Jindan took place.

    bhai do visit the Fort n take lots of pics (Y)
