AD). Historian geographers and poets of many centuries between 1021 and 1708 AD
have mentioned Lahore. In 1186 AD, Lahore was conquered by Shihab-ud-Din

earlier foundations in about 1566 AD. Nur-ud- Din Jahangir (1605-1627AD) and
Shahab-ud-Din Shah Jahan (1627-1658AD) constructed palaces in the Fort and built
tombs and gardens in the city. Aurangzeb Alamgir (1658-1707AD) built the grand
