The Hazuri Bagh Baradari (Urdu: حضوری باغ بارہ دری‎) is a baradari of white marble located in the Hazuri Bagh of Lahore, Pakistan. It was built by Maharaja Ranjit Singh, Sikh ruler of Punjab in 1818. During the Maharaja Ranjit Singh ruling period, and before that during the Mughal Empire ruling period, Lahore was known as the 'City of Gardens'.[1][2] The pillars support delicate cusped arches. The central area, where Maharaja Ranjit Singh held court, has a mirrored ceiling. The pavilion consisted of two storeys until it was damaged by lightning in 1932.
