Hazuri Bagh is a garden in Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan, between the Badshahi Mosque and Lahore Fort. The square garden was originally built by Aurangzed as a serai, or Moghul hoel. He also reviewed his troops here.

The two-story building by the southern gate was boarding house for the scholars who studied at the Badshahi Mosque. The Samadhi of Ranjit Singh (north side) and the Roshnai Darwaza (south side-Gate of Light). In the center stands the Hazuri Bagh Baradari, built by Ranjit Singh because it was brightly lit at night. Nobles visiting the palaces inside the fort used this entrance. Ranjit Singh’s grandson was killed here-probably not accidentally-by falling masonry while on his way from his father’s cremation to his own coronation.

The Hazuri Bagh Baradari, the marble pavilion in the centre of garden, was built by Ranjit Singh in 1818 with marble taken from various Moghul tombs and from the floor of the Hammam, or royal bath, in Lahore Fort. It is one of the few remaining Sikh monuments in Lahore. Elegant carved marble pillars support delicate cusped arches; the central area, where Ranjit Singh held court, has a mirrored ceiling. Both the garden and the baradari, originally a 45-foot, three-storey square with a basement approached by fifteen steps, suffered extensive damage during the fratricidal Sikh wars and was only reclaimed and laid out according to the original plan during the British period. On 1932.
