Photographer's Note

One reaches the baradari via the GT Road that proceeds north out of Lahore. Your driver parks the car near the bridge half on the sidewalk and you walk down a path towards the Ravi where a boat and boatman can be hired to take you across. The baradari was built as a summer house by Kamran Mirza (1509 - 1557 CE) on the right bank of the Ravi. During the reign of Aurangzeb, however, the Ravi changed course and the site became an island.

Prince Kamran was born in Kabul and died in Mecca. He was the second son of Babar and a step brother to Humayun. This is the only structure attributed to him in existence.
