Old Lahore Tips (5)

Walled City of Lahore

Old City of Lahore which is also called "Andron-e-Shehr" in local language which means Inner City was fortified by a city wall during Mughal Period. For entering this Castle like City there were 13 gates, which were intact till the British Rule. British Government demolished almost all of the gates to defortify the city. Only Roshnai Gate (Located near Badshahi Masjid, in front of Hazuri Bagh) survived in original shape. Few other gates were rebuilt in simple shape. Now only six gates are operational.

Badshahi Masjid & Royal Fort are also part of old city. But as they have their own strong boundary walls. Therefore we count them separately.

There are several shrines & Havelis (palaces) in the inner city. These havelis reflect the beauty of Mughal and Sikh Architecture. Some of the famous Havelis inside the Walled City are: Mubarak Haveli, Chuna Mandi Havelis, Haveli of Nau Nihal Singh, Nisar Haveli, Haveli Barood Khana, Haveli of Salman Sirhindi. Out of them "Imperial Baths" & "Asif Jah's Haveli" are prominent. Asif Jah's Haveli (Palace) is recently restored.

Wazir Khan Mosque is also situated in Old city near Dehli Gate. It was built in 1635 by Wazir Kahn, Governor of Lahore, in the period of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. It is famous for its marvelous tile work.

The Walled City of Lahore

The Walled City, also known as Old Lahore, is the area that was fortified during the Mughal period. The wall was originally pierced by 13 gates, but today only 6 of these remain.

We found the Delhi Gate to be the best entrance, and from there found our way through the narrow winding alleys to the Fort. The Old City is an incredibly interesting place to wander around. I am now kicking myself that we didn't take any photos, but I think we were just too distracted at the time by all the tiny shops and chickens in cages etc. It is quite easy to get lost there though!
