Picture Wall of the Lahore Fort

Picture Wall of the Lahore Fort was in really bad condition since quite some time until recently the largest mural in the world was given some importance. This decision has been taken by the Agha Khan Trust for Culture Pakistan (AKCS-P), who is already planning the renovation of this architectural masterpiece.

Eighty percent of the work has already been planned and started and it is expected that by the end of June, there would be a comprehensive report published to accelerate the preservation and restoration work at Picture Wall of the Lahore Fort. This entire initiative has been taken in collaboration with the Walled City of Lahore Authority (WCLA), along with the support of Norwegian Embassy. At the beginning of the work, it was expected that the entire work will be completed by the end of the year.

Picture collection for this Picture Wall of the Lahore Fort is the most challenging and time-taking tasks for the entire project. There are pictures collected for the continuous work from 1974. All these pictures have every detail of Pakistan’s history and culture. There is around 116 mosaic picture that depicts life and style of Mughal emperors, nature, art, and entertainment. Most of these pictures are a part of the royal court.

Picture Wall of the Lahore Fort is indeed one of Pakistan’s architectural treasures. It should rather be treated as a treasure so that coming generations may realize its worth. Even I am excited to see Picture Wall of the Lahore Fort again after this work!
