As you make your way to Lahore Fort from the newly built Greater Iqbal Park a straight passage will lead you to the historic complex “Huzoori Bagh”. This antique garden is a huge enclosure between the Alamgiri Gate of Lahore Fort and Badshahi Mosque. Right there in this garden, in an instance, you can feel the history of this region.
