The Naulakha pavilion - 'naulakha' means nine lakhs and has been traditionally regarded as being the cost of the pavilion - stands on the west side of the square in the Sheesh Mahal section of the Lahore fort. Made of ornamented marble, the graceful sloping design of the roof of the pavilion is an echo of the style of roof associated with Bengal. The pavilion is datable to the reign of Shah Jahan.
