Jehangir's Tomb

Today i went on a little sight seeing in Lahore. Afterall, its one of the few cities that can boast of a historic civilization(s) that left behind decent buildings.

In today's blog, i'll just leave the pictures to do the talking.

Betrands article might help explain the wiered looking potraits
