The former residence and legacy of the Mughal dynasty, UNESCO-protected Lahore Fort captivates for its monumental beauty and the mystery surrounding it. Although the fort flourished under Emperor Akbar of the Mughal dynasty, its origins extend as far back as the 11th century. Ornate decorations and colorful mosaics on every step speak for the wealth of the dynasty, while somewhat shabby conditions invoke a feeling of antiquity. Enjoy a walk through vast gardens while the sun sets in beautiful hues of pink and orange. Hire a tour guide and explore the numerous pavilions, then head to the Mughal museum, armory gallery, and the Sikh museum.

Have been there in my childhood in hot summers at least 20 years ago, this time the weather made us stayed for much longer this place speaks the royalty of rulers of that time every bit of it is royal the architect of the fort is mind blowing. Recommendation for those who have not been here. Just ensure you choose the right weather if you really want to have great memories.
Amzing place. It's historic place after all so there is great stuff to see and learn about. I had the luck to see the under ground area. But if you don't get lucky the above areas are even more spectacular. Tour guide is recommended without it you may not get best experience.
