Lahore Fort 01:
Lahore is one of the old & beautiful cities of Pakistan situated in province of Punjab.
The picture you are watching, is the main enterance of Lahore Fort. According to available historical information, the origin of Lahore Fort is obscure. Traditionally, the foundation of Lahore city & Lahore Fort is attributed to "Lo" son of Rama Chandra of the epic age (1200-800 BC).
During the archaeological excavation conducted in 1959, the remains of Pre-Muslim period as well as gold coins of Mehmood of Ghazna dated A.H. 416 (1025 A.D.) was found. This shows that habitation here existed long before the advent of Muslims in Lahore.
