Notes on the Geography of Pakistan: Lahore Fort: Photo 9

world pictures Pakistan: Lahore Fort

We're stepped behind the Hall of Public Audience and into Jahangir's Quadrangle. Straight ahead is the Bari Khawabgah, originally Jahangir's sleeping quarters, positioned at the north edge of the fort and with a view over the Ravi River, 50 feet below. The British adapted the building for military purposes. Now it's an art gallery.

The pool has a central mahtabi, or marble platform. Below this level, underground apartments provided a refuge in hot weather.
