Flying Free


"Love is from the infinite and will remain until eternity," Rumi.

At the entrance of the Royal Fort or Shahi Qila is a colourfully decorated wall with lots of little balconies. Looking closer you realise these are dovecots for the royal pigeons. Such attention to detail for these little messengers, one of my favourite features of this beautiful site, along with the elephant steps of course!

The Mughal era was a rich period in the history of Northern India and present day Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. A combination of Indian and Persian styles were amalgamated to produce a unique style of architecture, literature, Art and even language. The beauty produced and appreciated during this time deeply inspires me on a personal level, a part of my heritage I am fascinated with.

The architecture from this period had a delicate elegance to it and was epitomised by majestic domes and arches, decorative lattice screens, and inlaid floral motifs. Exquisite gardens laid out in the Charbagh, or quadrilateral style, divided by streams of running water and tulip shaped fountains in lakes remain as a reminder of this bygone, majestic era.
