Shahi Qila (Lahore Fort), Lahore
The small Moti Masjid (Pearl Mosque) was built by Shah Jahan in 1644 for the private use of the ladies of the royal household and was restored to its original delicacy in 1904.
This is one of the gate of the royal pavillions. If you love closely you will find that the walls very decorated by precious stones of different colours.

I was impressed at the size of the Lahore Fort complex. It was nice just to be able to roam around and hear the bus/car horns only at a distance for a change.
