As part of our quest to find a portable point and shoot camera for our photo essays, we decided to test out the Fuji X10 by revisiting our favorite spot in Lahore – the Wazir Khan Masjid. The mosque is located within an ancient square called Chowk Wazir Khan. The Wazir Khan chowk is connected with the Delhi Darwaza (gate) through a passage flanked by shops, hammams and inns on both sides.
The Delhi gate (one of the 13 gates of the walled city of Lahore) served as the entrance for visitors coming from Delhi. The gate which presently looks nothing like the original one was rebuilt by the British after having been destroyed during the Sikh rule.
