The fort can be accessed from the western end by the Alamgiri Gate. The Alamgiri Gate was built as a private entrance to the Royal Quarters. The fort is sectioned into different segments each having its own character.
The Maidan Diwan-e-Aam in the South of the citadel is an elegant garden and an important part of the Mughal Court. From the garden, visitors can see the British ceremonial steps that lead to the road. The Northern end of the garden is dominated by the Diwan-e-Aam. The hall of Diwan-e-Aam is constructed on a raised platform and is bounded by railings. The second floor of the Diwan-e-Aam has beautiful marble arches that overlook the Jahangir Quadrangle. The Khawabgarh-i-Jehangir presently has a small museum featuring Mughal antiques.
Towards the West of Khawabgarh-i-Jehangir is another beautiful pavilion, the Diwan-i-Khas, which was meant for the royal guests. The Shish Mahal, or the Palace of Mirrors, was built by Shah Jahan in 1631 for the empress and her court. The entire palace is decorated with mirrors that are set in stucco interiors. Visitors can enjoy amazing views of the Badshahi Masjid and the remaining fort from this palace. On the Western end of the fort is the Naulakha. This beautiful marble pavilion is adorned with small jewels and floral motifs.
Visitors can exit the fort from the Naulakha down the Hathi Paer from the Shah Burj Gate. When you are exiting the fort, check out the fine tilework on the outer wall. During your tour of the fort you can see some small exhibits at the Armoury Gallery and Sikh Gallery.
Close to the Lahore Fort, you can find several Masaajid and halal restaurants. The Badshahi Masjid is the closest to the fort.
