  • A very beautiful historical garden representing Mughal architecture. A calm and peaceful place.
  • This is the place where you can have a glance of Muslim history in subcontinent.The most beautiful aspect of muslim rule was splendid arcitacture..
  • Lovely place and a must visit for everyone. The sad part is that the Pakistani government has grossly neglected to maintain such a historic and beautiful place. It's like they don't care and if such they should hand over care and maintenance to another willing organisation. I believe such a place is for all humanity and should be preserved and we'll kept for all generations.
