    Hiran Minar Park

      Hiran Minar or the tower of the deer is a Tourist Attraction situated in the city of Sheikhupura. This city is 40 kilometers away from the provincial capital, Lahore. The 4th Mughal King Jahangir built this structure in a beautiful lake. Basically, it is a monument of a deer that is the reason behind its name. It is a structure of the year 1606 which was built on the grave of the “Mansraj” (Royal Deer). The height of this tower is 100 feet. History says that “Mansraj” was the lucky deer which got the status of pet to the Great Mughal King Jahangir. Later on, this tower was used to locate the wild animals to hunt. It gives you the total view of surrounding areas. It is another amazing structure of the Mughal Era. Tourists could observe that age very closely, by visiting this place of Deer’s tower in Sheikhupura.   A very large water tank increases its beauty because water covers this structure from all sides. There is a small bridge for pedestrians to connect this building with the land. A slope was built in a side of this pool; it was to facilitate the pet animals of the Royal family. Water collection and water exiting system of this building is really impressive. The location of Hiran Minar is also very impressive so as its environment. It is one of the best places to visit in the Punjab province. When you reach to its roof, it takes you in some other world. The scenes of forest are eye catching. There is a large water pool where peoples seem busy in boating. It is a very cool place to visit in the summer season. There are few places around it where peoples come for hunting.

    Jahangir's Tomb

    Jahangir's Tomb is a Historical Tomb and tourist attraction Located in Shahdara, Punjab Pakistan. The emperor Jahangir died in camp on a return journey from Kashmir in 1627, and was buried at Shahdara, 3 miles north-West of Lahore at that time. The tomb of Jahangir stands beside a former bank of the Ravi in the midst of a large garden 1,500 feet square, enclosed by a brick wall with a monumental gateway in the middle of the Westside. Brick-paved causeways divide the garden into 16 square flower-beds, with an ornamental tank and fountain at each intersection; and in its prime the “paradise” must have provided a beautiful and fragrant resting-place. It is recorded to have been originally the garden of Jahangir’s celebrated queen, Nur Jahan, and the emperor was buried there at his own request.     The tomb of Jahangir itself is also square, with sides of 325 feet, and consists of an arcaded platform with tall octagonal corner-towers and a projecting entrance-bay in the midst of each side. The external walls, including the lowest stage of the towers, are faced with Mathura sandstone, the red colour of which is dominated by a rich panel-decoration inlaid in white and black marble. The panels are partly geometrical and partly of the Persian “niche” design, with representations of vases in some of the niches. The corner-towers are of five stages of which the three intermediate stages are decorated with horizontal zigzag inlay, alternately of white and yellow marble separated by black marble lines.     The topmost stages are white marble “Hindu” pavilions. The stages are separated by bracketed balconies. The general design of these towers is graceful and effective. Their prototypes in the Indo-Pakistan sub-continent are best represented in Gujarat and the Deccan, where the culminating example is the famous Char Minar of Hyderabad (A.D. 1591). But there, as at Champanir and elsewhere, the pavilion of the distinctive “Hindu” type is lacking; and it is rather in the use of low octagonal corner-towers surmounted by “Hindu” pavilions at Akbar’s tomb near Agra (A.D. 1612-13) that the immediate forebear of the North Indian series is to be recognized. Octagonal corner-towers of tomb of Jahangir, relatively taller than those of Akbar’s tomb, were also attached to the charming little tomb of I‘timad-ud-Daula at Agra in 1628, contemporaneously with their still bolder inclusion in the design of Jahangir’s tomb.   A few years later, in Wazir Khan’s mosque at Lahore (1634), similar towers or minarets stood detached and emphatic, and at the same time four isolated minarets were being incorporated in the design of the Taj Mahal. Later again, in 1673, four independent octagonal towers defined the courtyard of the great Badshahi mosque at Lahore. In all these, the crowning element is the Hindu pavilion, and the group may be regarded as essentially a part of the Mughal Indo-Iranian complex.   On the roof of the main platform of Jahangir’s tomb is a central podium which probably, again on a general analogy with Akbar’s tomb, carried a marble pavilion. There is evidence of a former (marble) railing around the outer edge of the podium in the tomb of Jahangir, but the present marble flooring is a relatively modern patchwork which conceals the exact plan of the superstructure. Like so much else, the latter was doubtless removed by the Sikhs at the end of the eighteenth or beginning of the nineteenth century.

Mughal emperor Aurangzeb also tried to occupy the fort, which went in vain.

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.

It's large enough to allow several elephants carrying members of the royal family to enter at one time. There is a flight of stone steps specially built for ceremonial elephant processions.     The fort as it stands today is not what it was when it was initially constructed in 1566. Every successive Mughal emperor besides the Sikhs, and the British added a pavilion, palace of the wall to the Fort. Jahangir, Shah Jehan and later Aurangzeb added modifications of massively fortified walls. .It has two gates one is known as Alamgiri Gate build by Emperor Aurangzeb which opens towards Badshahi mosque and other older one known as Maseeti (Punjabi language word means of Masjid) or Masjidi Gate which opens towards Masti Gate Area of Walled City and was built by Emperor Akbar.   Currently, Alamgiri Gate is used as the principal entrance while Masti Gate is permanently closed.

The Rajput history claims its name Malot from the word Malik-Kot, as they believed that the title of Malik was given to the one who accepted annexation to the Muslim King of Delhi although in reward the Malik enjoyed the autonomous status with full sovereignty in the assigned area. The Mughal King Baber’s travelogue “Tuzk-e-Babri” attests to the corollary of Malik-Kot, Mal-Kot and then Malot.
