This beautiful artwork of Mughal architecture is situated in Lahore fort at Lahore, Pakistan.

Why this is so special to me. Sheesh Mahal is closed for general people for several reasons. Some Valid some not :)). It took me almost one and half years time to get permission and shoot inside. It was worth waiting and shooting. It's the finest Mughal artwork inside of the Lahore Fort. This is just one of Halls inside Sheesh Mahal.

Sheesh Mahal, in Urdu language, literally means "Crystal Palace". However, with its pietra dura decorations and intricate mirror-work inlaid into the white marble walls and ceilings creating gleaming effect,[3] the lavish room has come to be known as "Palace of Mirrors", and sometimes the "Hall of Mirrors".
