4.4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
The former residence and legacy of the Mughal dynasty, UNESCO-protected Lahore Fort (Shahi Qila) captivates for its monumental beauty and the mystery surrounding it. Although the fort flourished under Emperor Akbar of the Mughal dynasty, its origins extend as far back as the 11th century. Ornate decorations and colorful mosaics on every step speak for the wealth of the dynasty, while somewhat shabby conditions invoke a feeling of antiquity. Enjoy a walk through vast gardens while the sun sets in beautiful hues of pink and orange. Hire a tour guide and explore the numerous pavilions, then head to the Mughal museum, armory gallery, and the Sikh museum.

  • Awesome !!! Really. The best place i visited ever. Fortunately all the area was open. So visited every room and every place on Lahore fort.Our history was great. Love this ❤
  • Worst experience. We cannot even take pictures of our historical places. All areas sealed. No one can enter into any chamber or room. Even we are not allowed to go underground. My suggestion is that they should now destroy historical places. F**king Govt. and their rules.
  • Love lahote fort its awsme in dazzling rays of sun I jxt feel best n relax in fort tht awsme thinking of mughals and they have a gorgious people for built the fort....
  • Due to the attitude of people who came to visit and started ruining the place, like by writing on the walls etc. many areas have been sealed like the basement and the inner areas. If people start showing proper behavior, I hope they will open it up once again.
  • The Lahore Fort is indeed a marvelous Mughal Structure. Sheesh Mahal, Naulakha Pavilion and Moti Masjid are some structures worth seeing which manifest the rich traditions of Mughal architecture.
