Lahore Fort

Built before 1025 AD, the origins of the Shahi Qila go as far back as antiquity, however, the existing base structure was built during the reign of Mughal Emperor Akbar between 1556–1605 and was regularly upgraded by subsequent Mughal, Sikh and British rulers.


Stunning. I have to visit this. Wazir Khan Masjid (Lahore, Pakistan). It was built in seven years, starting around 1634–1635 AD, during the reign of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jehan of Lahore (yes, the builder of the Taj Mahal was born and raised in Lahore)
