A Short story of Hiran minnaar
In 1606 “hinar minnar” build by “Emperor Jahangir” to honor the memory of a pet hunting antelope named “Mansraj”.
He loved his cherished pet Mansraj (meaning “Light of the Mind”) who was an antelope. The Emperor is remembered for his fondness of nature.
Hiran Minar was built during the reign of the Mughal Emperor Jahangir in a hunting reserve used by the Mughal royals. The reserve was built in a scrub forest, and allowed Mughal emperors to experience of semi-wilderness near the city Lahore. They use a park where peoples enjoy hunting. The minaret and tank were soon accompanied by a larger pavilion, built during the reign of Shah Jahan. The complex consists of a Jahangir-era minaret situated next to a larger Shah Jahan-era complex.
The Jahangir-era minaret stands 30 metres tall and built in 1606 C.E. The sides of the minar are inscribed with a eulogy to the pet antelope.
A massive rectangular water pool measuring 229 meters by 273 at the heart of the complex. a brick ramp slopes down to the water. providing access for wild game that were sought by hunters.
A causeway spans the pool to connect the minaret to the axis which passes through a gateway.
