The former residence and legacy of the Mughal dynasty, UNESCO-protected Lahore Fort 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. Use our Lahore trip planner to visit Lahore Fort on your trip to Lahore, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • The Lahore Fort, is a citadel in the city of Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan 🇵🇰. The fortress is located at the northern end of walled city Lahore, and spreads over an area greater than 20 hectares. It contains 21 notable monuments, some of which date to the era of Emperor Akbar. Incredibly well maintained and clean place it is a role model for all other departments dealing with tourism in Pakistan. Well done Walled City Authority. They have qualified and knowledgeable guides, it is advised that they should be hired fir a better experience. They are offering this facility online. Definitely get a guided tour. Very knowledgeable staff. Wish they kept up the area a bit more. Shocked how close we were able to get to some of the paintings! Great experience and atmosphere. #TheUnexploredPakistan ❤️🇵🇰❤️
