Sheesh Mehal Pakistan

Posted by khubaib abbasi On 10:51 AM 6 comments


The word "sheesh mehal" means The Palace of Mirrors. Sheesh Mehal is present in Lahore Pakistan. Sheesh mehal is a beautiful historical place in pakistan. Sheesh mehal was constructed under the reign of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in 1631-32. The ornate white marble pavilion is inlaid with pietra dura and complex mirror-work of the finest quality. The hall was reserved for personal use by the imperial family and close aides. It is among the 21 monuments that were built by successive Mughal emperors inside Lahore Fort, and forms the jewel in the Fort’s crown. Sheesh Mahal, in Urdu language, literally means 'Crystal Palace'. The solid brick foundations of Lahore Fort were laid in 1566 under the reign of Mughal emperor Akbar the Great on the location of an earlier mud-fort. To build the new fort, the Emperor brought experienced artisans after the completion of Fatehpur Sikri. The sheesh mahal was built by a famous architect of mughals. It was built in the middle of Akbar's rule. The fa├žade, comprising of five cusped marble arches supported by coupled columns, opens into the courtyard. The engrailed spandrels and bases are inlaid with precious stones. This fort is constructed in white marble and red sandstone and its beauty is exaggerated by the Maotha Lake. The construction of this fort began in 1592 by Raja Man Singh.
