Former capital of the Ghaznawid and Mughal Empires, sister city of Delhi, known as Dar al-Sultanat (the abode of the Mughal Sultanate). This album begins, appropriately, with the shrine of the spiritual pole of the city, gatekeeper of Hindustan, Hz. Ali Hajveri (a.k.a. Data Sahib), who wrote the seminal encyclopedia of metaphysics and theosophy, Kashf al-Mahjub in the 11th century CE.
Little known fact: Lahore was probably named after old Lahor (a.k.a. Hund), the capital of the Shahis of Kabul and Gandhara near modern day Attock), so early sources mentioning 'Lahor(e)' may not necessarily refer to this city.
