Marble pavilion and old entrance to the fort - Lahore 1860-70's

Marble pavilion and old entrance to the fort - Lahore 1860-70's
Ranjit Singh built the marble pavilion in the tree-lined terraces of the Hazuri Bagh in Lahore in 1818. It was to provide a cool garden retreat where he could take refuge from the heat. The European gentleman in the pavilion is likely to be James Craddock, who often included himself in his photographs.

Photographed by Craddock, James in ca. 1860 - 1870
