Notes on the Geography of Pakistan: Lahore Fort: Photo 5
In the distance on the left you can see one of the minarets of the Badshahi or King's Mosque. You can even discern the top of the Alamgiri Gate, wedged in some treetops. In any case, we've come all the way across the fort, not far from the point where the first picture was taken looking into the city. We're looking back across the fort, in other words. Half of it is open ground, divided into the quadripartite char bagh form so beloved by the Mughals. On the right is the British-reconstructed Hall of Public Audience, or diwan-i-am, comparable to the diwan-i-am in the Red Fort at Delhi. This fort's buildings, in any case, are concentrated behind and to the left of the hall.
