Area Details

The Lahore Fort is the home to the world’s unique fresco paintings and pietra dura work and paintings in large numbers where most of the precious fresco painting work has been faded away or vandalized due to the environmental conditions. There are 42 water cascades and fountain systems inside the palace, which once used to remain palace fragrant with a mixture of scent and fragrances. The walls of the palace illuminated once with silver and gold fresco paintings.
The fort was changed by Jahangir in 1618 and later damaged by the Sikhs and the British, although it has now been partially restored. Within it is a succession of stately palaces, halls, and gardens built by Mughal emperors Akbar, Jahangir, Shah Jahan, and Aurangzeb, comparable to and contemporary with the other great Mughal forts at Delhi and Agra in India. It's considered that the site conceals some of Lahore's most ancient remains. The fort is entered on its western side through the large Alamgiri Gate, built by Aurangzeb in 1674 as a private entrance to the royal quarters. It was large enough to allow several elephants carrying members of the royal household to enter at one time.
The small Moti Masjid (Pearl Mosque) was built by Shah Jahan in 1644 for the private use of the ladies of the royal household and was restored to its original delicacy in 1904. Khawabgarh-i-Jehangir (Jahangir’s Sleeping Quarters), a building on the north side of his yard, now houses a small museum of Mughal antiquities. One charming story about Jahangir is that he had a chain suspended outside the fort, which anyone unable to obtain justice through the usual channels could pull. A bell would ring in his private chambers and the petition would receive his attention
There are three small museums on site (photography prohibited) The Armory Gallery exhibits various arms including pistols, swords, daggers, spears, and arrows; the Sikh Gallery predominantly houses rare oil paintings; and the Mughal Gallery includes among its exhibits old manuscripts, calligraphy, coins, and miniature paintings, as well as an ivory miniature model of India's Taj Mahal.
