Lahore History Tour – Installment #12

Jahangir’s Quadrangle Tour continued…..When one looks at the level of craftsmanship in Jahangir’s Quadrangle, one cannot help but say “Subhan Allah” at the level of skills mastered by Mughal artisans. Much of these skills still survive today in the hands of a few dedicated artisans, however; unfortunately their numbers is quickly dwindling.
