    Beautiful Fort Gardens in Lahore Central

    by Muarrij Updated Mar 12, 2007
    Gardens around the Lahore Fort and Mosque area.

    The environs within and around the fort and mosque areas are quite plush. Well laid out and trimmed gardens where you can relax and bask in the lovely sunshine away from the polluted city traffic.

    Its a new area to picnic in the late afternoons.

    This is a very beautiful mosque.

    We were privileged to be allowed to see the relics of the Prophet.

    Although it was only March, the courtyard was baking hot, and very uncomfortable to walk on without shoes.

  • "Royal Mosque"

    by wendeth Written Apr 19, 2005

    This is within the same grounds as the Lahore Fort, so make sure you plan PLENTY of time to do both of these things. Seeing the inside of the Masjid won't take so long really, but walking around and taking pictures of the outside could prove to be a little while if you like that sort of thing. You pay only 10 rupees if you drive your own car into the grounds and that is for both the Masjid and the Fort.
