The Noor Mahal is an historic palace in Bahawalpur, Pakistan. It was built in 1872 at a time when modernism had set in. It belonged to the Nawab of Bahawalpur princely state, during British Raj. Nawab Sadiq Muhammad Khan IV had the palace made for his wife; however, she was only there for one night, as she happened to see the adjoining graveyard from her balcony, and refused to spend another night there, and so it remained unused during his reign.
Noor Mehal is one of the hidden gems of Bahawalpur, since not many know about it.The palace is open to public. It is currently in possession of the army and is used as state guest house and for holding state durbars and meetings with foreign delegations.
