Reminiscence of the Mughal Rule
Jul 2019 • Solo
This Mughal-era building still stands undamaged amidst the terribly violence-stricken sector of Lahore. The entrance itself is a masterpiece, made of red sandstone. I liked the tomb of the main mosque.

Shahi Guzargah is the name of royal trail between Delhi Gate and Masti Gate of old walled city Lahore. Fascinating old market place with Shahi Hamam and Wazir Khan mosque, best to visit during winters with family and friends.

The Mughil palaces and courts inside the Walled Fort of Lahore are a must see for visitors to the city.

The splendour of the Kings is on display in the grandeur and size of the various palaces as well as the intricate details in architecture.

Lahore is a city that has seen many ups and downs. It most glorious era was that when the Mughals ruled it. Emperor Akbar made it the capital of India and built heavy fortifications and 13 gates around Lahore. Delhi Gate was the point from where the Mughal Emperors and their caravans used to enter the Walled City and go towards the Lahore Fort. The 1,6 kms route they took was called the Shahi Guzargah or the Royal Trail. I have seen similar royal walkways in cities like Prague and Krakow. At the start of the Shahi Guzargah you can see the Shahi Hammam, which was situated here so that the travelers could bathe and cleanse themselves before entering the city. The route is full of architectural monuments, heritage mansions and old mosques like the Masjid Wazir Khan, Sonehri Mosque, Maryam Zamani Mosque and ends at the famous Badshahi Mosque. The bane of this area was that the heritage area also hosts some of the largest wholesale markets of Asia. Recently the Walled City Authority of Lahore took up the task of restoring this route and now you can enjoy it without dangling electric wires, irregular encroachments, unpleasant sewage stench, ugly garbage heaps and over commercialization. In the section that has been restored I really felt like I was walking through the Mughal era Walled City. The facades of the buildings have been restored with bricks from the pathways; the electric wires, sewage drains and water pipes have been concealed and the encroachments have been permanently removed. I really pray for the day the whole Walled City would be like this.
