    Kokaltash Tomb is a historical place and tourist attraction in Pakistan, mostly Visit by Foreigners around the world.

     

    To reach the tomb of Khan-e-Jahan Bahadur Zafar Jang Kokaltash, you should proceed south on Shalimar Link Road from G.T. Road. You will need to turn right (west) into Canal Bank Road. As you drive along the pleasant bank of the canal, Bahadur Zafar Jang's tomb will appear on your right beyond the canal. Making a 'U' turn on the bridge you will need to travel east for a little distance along the opposite side of the canal, before you can take a sharp left turn on a road that slopes down from Khayaban-e-Anne Marie Schimmel (Canal Bank Road).

     

    On your right stands one of the finest brickwork structures of the Mughal Period in Lahore—the magnificent brick tomb of Zafar Jang Kokaltash on a raised podium following the octagonal plan form of the tomb. Although bereft of its facing, it is beautiful, well-detailed brick masonry lends it a character entirely its own. The division of wall surface in a pattern of sunken panels would have lent itself admirably to treatment with fresco painting and possibly even tile mosaic.
