  • A famous historical place in Lahore that is in good preserved condition to-date. The marvellous construction, scheme of the garden and its architecture leaves you ponder deeply about the great building ideas which can last for hundred years and this place speaks of the splendid architecture style of the man who had achieved great knowledge how to construct such historical places. Imagine how beautiful was this place before 300 years ago that was it's glory time. Have not enough words to describe its beauty .... but can just say Marvellous !!!!
  • I was exuberant to see how well preserved the garden is. It's in better shape than the Lahore Fort. It's best to ask the security guards to give you a tour, they describe in detail. Please tip them generously.
