Mughal Fountain

One of the hundreds of fountains that are located inside the Lahore Fort. Now defunct these fountains would have been beautiful in their time. The fountain is carved out of white marble used extensively in Mughal architecture.

It's beautiful in our time, too.

Very good to have you back, D.R. I'm going to leave a note for Dina, she'll be glad to know. She's in Australia right now, safely out of Jerusalem for the time being.

Beautiful fountain and composition too!
I find Mughal architecture absolutely stunning! Never been to Pakistan but have seen a lot in India. Fatehpur Sikri is among my favourites.

Thanks Petrea, I saw Dina's pictures from Australia. I hope everyone around the world is safe in these dark times.

Thanks JM, there is a lot of Mughal architecture in Pakistan too, Lahore being the seat of the Empire for quite a while.

Thanks Daanish, I hope to share more as time goes on.
