Chauburji: The journey of a Garden to Crossroad

Chauburji (pronounced as چوبرجی‎ in Urdu, while ‘Chau’ means ‘four’ and ‘burji’ means tower) is one of the most famous monuments among the structures and buildings of the Mughal era in the city of Lahore Pakistan. In the historic city of Lahore on the road that leads southwards to Multan, the Chauburji gateway remains of an extensive garden known to have existed in Mughal times. The establishment of this garden is attributed to Mughal Princess Zeb-un-Nisa (1646 AD) which appears in one of the inscriptions on this gateway. The gateway consists of four towers and contains much of the brilliant tile work with which the entire entrance was once covered.
