Lahore Fort

Sun setting behind the 17th century Alamgiri Gate and the minarets of the Badhahi Mosque. This part of the fort was built by Mughal emperor Aurangzeb in 1674.

“After the annexation of the Punjab and the resultant occupation of the Fort bv British troops, entrance to the Fort was diverted from the Alamgiri gate and controlled through the smaller gate close to the hathi paon or elephant staircase used in former times by royal residents to access the private royal apartments of the Summun Burj. A metalled road was built later connecting this outer gate and the Diwan- i-Am. The Alamgiri gate was kept permanently closed and barred, severing its functional link between the Fort and the Hazuri Bagh.” – Lahore, Illustrated Views of the 19th Century by F.S. Aijazuddin.
