The Naqqar Khana and Lahore Gate



Fig. 90: THE NAQQAR KHANA AND LAHORE GATE, photograph by Robert and Harriet Tytler, 1858. The view is taken from the roof of the Diwan-i Am looking towards the west side of the great chowk that formerly existed here surrounded by an arcaded cloister. The west side was pierced by two smaller gateways near the corners as marked in fig. 86 and as recorded here as well as by the Naqqar Khana itself. Beyond is the Jilau Khana, the court at the crossroads of the palace. British Library, London, Photo 53/(17).

The Mughal Images immediately took a much greater interest in realistic portraiture than was typical of Persian miniatures. Animals and plants were the main subject of many miniatures for albums and were more realistically depicted. To upload your images click here.
