The earliest princes were said to be traditional Gurjara origion.Hieun Tsang , the Chinese traveller, who visited the Punjab in 630 AD, speaks of a large city, containing many thousands of families, chiefly Brahmans , situated on the eastern frontier of the kingdom of Cheka, which he says, extended from the indus to the Beas river. Many historians agree that Lahore was founded by an ancient Hindu colony sometime between the first and seventh centuries, probably as early as the beginning of the second; that it soon rose to be a place of importance, the parent of other colonies, and eventually the capital of a powerful principality, to which it gave its name. There are some grounds supporting that the old Hindu city of Lahore did not occupy exactly the site of the modern city. Tradition points the site of old Lahore to the vicinity of Ichhara – which is now a part of Lahore city – but was back then a village about three miles to the west.

During this time, the massive Lahore fort was built. A few buildings within the fort were added by Akbar’s son, Mughal emperor Jahangir. Jahangir’s son, Shahjahan Burki, was born in Lahore.
