The Shish Mahal or Hall of Mirrors in the Lahore Fort. The walls are adorned with intricate tile work inlaid with mirrors. It is part of the Naulakha enclosure that served as a pivate quarter or Harem for women. I remember being allowed into this hall as a child, but now a days the government officials are warey of allowing any members of the public actually entering this majestic hall.

Not really. If someone like you had built the Taj, it wouldn't have turned out quite so well, to put it across gently.

never knew south asia had this much amazing islamic architecture, i was only aware of Taj Mahal.

But I agree with some posters here, These are purely persian and even turkish. There is nothing Indian or Hindu architecture in these pics. I have seen hindu temples in India and they look very different, I am not saying their bad designs but they look nothing like these pics.

India: "Home" of the Classical Indo-Islamic Architecture in South Asia.

Masjid - e - Jahaan Numa -- Old Delhi -- INDIA

Single most iconic & important example of classical Indo-Islamic landmark constructed in South Asia. An effortless marriage between white marble juxtaposed with red sandstones all the way to the top of both the minarets. Its perfection personified. Often immitated later but never duplicated.
