Walled City of Lahore

Résumé
The Walled City of Lahore (اندرونِ شہر لہور; , "Inner City of Lahore"), also known as the Old City, forms the historic core of the city of Lahore in the Punjab province of Pakistan. The city was established around 1000 CE in the western half of the Walled City, which was fortified by a mud wall during the medieval era. It is the cultural centre of both Punjab and Pakistan. The Walled City rose in prominence after being selected as the Mughal capital, which resulted in construction of the Lahore Fort – now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as the city's new reinforced walls. The Walled City was bestowed with numerous monuments during the Mughal era, with some of Lahore's most iconic structures being located in the Walled City, such as the lavishly decorated Wazir Khan Mosque, the massive Badshahi Mosque, and the Shahi Hammam. Under Sikh rule, the city was again selected as capital, and the Walled City again rose in prominence with numerous religious buildings
