Inside Noor Mahal

Noor Mahal interior

Noor Mahal, or “Palace of Light”, was built in 1872, during the British Raj, by the Nawab of Bahawalpur. It combines elements of Corinthian, Islamic and Indian architecture. The palace was eventually purchased by the Pakistani military and is currently maintained as an officer’s mess. However, it is mostly kept open to the public.
