Through the Lens: Part One – Lahore Fort

A little while back, I along with my friend, visited some historical places of Lahore and the experience was amazing, to say the least. Since quite a few places were visited, I have decided to make two pictorial blog posts of our expedition. This is part one. 

The first place was Lahore Fort also known as the Shahi Qila. It was initially built during the Mughal reign by Emperor Akbar between 1556-1605. Honestly, I don’t remember much in terms of history but the place was humongous  and rather gorgeous. Please google details, if you are intrigued to know the exact history.

Narrowing down pictures was a rather difficult task, but I hope I did somewhat justice to the place. The scale, architecture, design and craftsmanship of this place left me in state of awe. It is definitely a must-see place!
