while moving on canal road Lahore, if you go towards Mugalpura underpass coming from The Mall, then you have to cross railway tracks over road; At this place if you look towards your left side, you’ll have a look over a tomb in miserablecondition. This is a tomb of Khan-e-Jahan Bahadur Jang Kokaltash. Daily thousands of people watch this tomb when they move there but very very few know what is it. I have been in Lahore for more then sixteen years and hundred of times i passed by this road, it comes to my mind always to see what is it and at last I go and found a mausoleum. He is of  Nobles of Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb Alamgir’s period and the name of that Noble is ‘Khan-e-Jahan Bahadur Zafar Jang Kokaltash’.

The mausoleum is ocotagonal in plan with high arches on each side and stands on an octagonal platform.

Its 32′ diameter dome, raised on a drum, is reminiscent more of the dome form utilized in the tomb of Anarkali, rather than those of other nobles such as Ali Mardan Khan or Asaf Khan. This is not surprising, since Nawab Bahadur Khan, reputed to be one of Akbar’s nobles, died in 1601, which makes his tomb contemporaneous with the tomb of Anarkali, built in 1615.

    Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against
    hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard
    on. Any recommendations?

    When I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when
    new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment
    is added I receive 4 emails with the exact same comment.

    There has to be an easy method you are able to remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!
