Lahore Fort (Shahi Qila) and Badshahi Mosque



One of my most favorite historical sites in Lahore is Lahore Fort and Badshahi Mosque.

Fort of Lahore is also called locally as "Shahi Qila" means "The Royal Fort". It is is one of the magnificent fort that has a majestic history. This Fort speaks of the artistic genius of the creator's mind. This fort has a beautiful garden in front of it known as Huzori Bagh. I always feel fascinated by such historical sites because many of emperors stories associated with such places gives me a wonderful feeling.

City of Lahore was the center of Mughul Emperors. It has attained the splendid glory during the reign of Mughual Emperor jalal uddin muhammad akbar (1556-1605 A.D).  King Akbar was fond of unique architecture. The guide told me such a detailed and interesting stories of the Fort, about the Emperors and Queens, their ways of living and dealing of emperors with public.
