The Walled City of Lahore
The Walled City of Lahore, also known as Old City, forms the historic core of Lahore, Pakistan. The city was established around 1000 CE in the western half of the Walled City, which was fortified by a mud wall during the medieval era. The Walled City was bestowed with numerous monuments during the Mughal era, with some of Lahore’s most iconic structures being located in the Walled City, such as the lavishly decorated Wazir Khan Mosque, the massive Badshahi Mosque, and the Shahi Hammam.
The Royal Trail was named as Shahi Guzargah because some of the historians report that it was used by emperors while coming from Delhi and going to Lahore Fort.
The Shahi Hammam also known as the Wazir Khan Hammam, is a Persian-style bath which was built in Lahore, in 1635 C.E. during the reign of Emperor Shah Jahan.
The Lahore Fort is a citadel in the city of Lahore. The fortress is located at the northern end of Lahore’s Walled City, and spreads over an area greater than 20 hectares.
