This week’s sunset is from Lahore, Pakistan!
This photo is taken at Data Darbar, a large Sufi shrine in the Pakistani city of Lahore. Data Ganj Baksh was a preacher and scholar from Persia who lived in Lahore in the eleventh century. He is said to have contributed to the spread of Islam in the subcontinent, and his shrine is now one of the most frequented in Pakistan. Cameras aren’t allowed inside the shrine for security reasons, but thankfully there’s no restriction on mobile phone cameras. I visited late in the afternoon with a close friend of mine, and as we entered the main gate I caught this beautiful view of the sun setting over the shrine.
