KAMRAN'S BARADARI:


 


Kamran's Baradari and Garden, the oldest Mughal building in Lahore, was built by Mirza Kamran, the son of Babar and step brother of Hamayun. He ruled over Lahore Lahore from 1535-1540 AD. This picturesque Baradari (pavilion) of Kamran was built as a summer house and remained a recreational place for the Mughal Imperial family. The River Ravi at that time flowed at a considerable distance but as the river changed its course during the period of the 6th Mughal Emperor Aurangzeba Alamgir, the Baradari became an Island, and with its beautiful sprawling gardens and decorative features is now used as a picnic resort by the people of Lahore.
