Hiran Minar (Sheikhupura) – Gardens of the Mughal Empire
Sheikhupura, having a short distance from city of Lahore, nickname for Prince Jahangir who was called as Sheikhu so the city called Sheikhupura. Just north of Sheikhupura town lies a hunting complex known as the Hiran Minar.
Hunting grounds were an important part of the environment of Mughal emperors; Hiran Minar is one of the most beautiful of such sites constructed by Mughal emperors. Its structures consist of a large square water tank with an octahedral pavilion in its center. At the center of each side of the tank, a brick ramp slopes down to the water, providing access for royal animals and wild game. The minar itself was built by Emperor Jahangir in 1606.
 Unique features of this complex are the antelope’s grave and the water collection system. At each corner of the tank (273 m) in size, is a small, square building and a subsurface water collection system. Top of the minar is best place in the Punjab province to have a fantastic view sight.
This historical place relates to be seen. It shows the glory and richness of the Mughal Empire. In the sub-continent many buildings are present that are constructed by the Mughal’s. This place is a good picnic spot for those who love to the past and want to see it. If you still not visit this memorable place then you should make a program immediately.
