Also known as Shahi Qila, the Lahore fort is strategically placed along the ancient city walls, and acted as its defence. Built as far back as 800 AD, the fort was developed by every ruler since, and so displays a wide variety of astoundingly beautiful architecture and decoration. Along with the Shalimar Gardens, it has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
