Darbar Mahal-Bahawalpur

Darbar Mahal-Bahawalpur

If you want to have mughal feeling, go to Darbar Mehal. The mehal itself is under the control of Pakistan Army, but its grounds are a popular tourist attraction since they provide proximity and excellent view of the architecture that resembles that of the ancient Mughalai Forts, and is on par with the typical fusion of East Indian and Arabic architectural techniques that were prevalent in the subcontinent during the 1800s. Darbar Mahal was commissioned by Nawab Bahal Khan (V) in 1904, and was one of its kind among other forts that had been built around that time. Originally conceived as the “Bhawal Gerh”; the fort was completed in 1905 and was dedicated to one of the wives of the Nawab. The least you can do it is take your wife to visit and dedicate the trip to her. We hope it works.
