Tomb of Mughal Emperor Jahangir

The Tomb of Jahangir is a mausoleum built for Jahangir, who ruled the Mughal Empire from 1605 to 1627. The mausoleum is located in Shahdara Bagh in Lahore, Pakistan, not far from the mausoleum of Jahangir’s wife Nur Jahan. The site also contains a mausoleum for Nur Jahan’s brother, Asif Khan, but my camera ran out of battery before I visited that part.

Below, I wasn’t able to take a picture this time, but here is a photo of the tomb of Asif Khan from the previous time I was there (10 years ago). There has been no restoration done on that part of the complex so it pretty much looks just like that now.
