Lahore History Tour – Installment #13

I took a bit of a break but I am back now with more on Lahore History Tour. Today, I will continue again with Jahangir’s Quadrangle which has been the theme for the last few posts. Still concentrating on the decorative work on pillars located within the porticoes on the east and west sides of the quadrangle.

Pillars on the northeastern side of Jahangir’s Quadrangle are intricately carved over their whole length.
