Alamgiri Gate of Lahore Fort, Pakistan


The massive  entry portals of Lahore fort shaped like elephant feet were the symbols of Mughal power and might . The  gate whose semi-circular towers and domed pavilions are a widely recognised symbol of Lahore , were built by the Emperor Aurangzeb. Lahore fortress  is located at the northern end of  walled city of Lahore and spreads over an area greater than 20  hectares. The site of the fort had been inhabited for millennia and a mud-brick fortified structure existed in the 11th CE.

It contains 21 notable monuments, some of which date to the era of Emperor  Akbar. The foundations of the modern Lahore Fort date to 1566 during the reign of Emperor Akbar, who bestowed the fort with a syncretic architectural style that featured both Islamic and Hindu motifs  seen especially in the Rajput style paintings on the exterior walls of the fort. The Lahore Fort is notable for having been almost entirely rebuilt in the 17th century  when the Mughal Empire  was at the height of its splendour and opulence. Additions were made by Shah Jehan, the builder of the taj Mahal in Agra, which  are characterized by luxurious marble with inlaid Persian floral designs. The fort’s grand and iconic Alamgiri Gate was constructed by the sixth Mughal Emperors, Aurangzeb,
