    As far as I understand that the name SHAHDARA has two parts
    first is SHAH…. and the next is….. DARA.
    SHAH means the KING …… and DARA reflects the meaning of DOOR (Darawaza).if we combine these two words.. then we can say it is the door or darawaza from where any one enter into the Mahal or Fort..Gateway to enter in the King place.

    To Pervaiz Munir Alvi.
    I have found evidence of your position on the name of Shahdara. The name of that place near Lahore is mentioned in the Akbarnama of Abul Fazl. My mis-information was obtained from a few articles by Majid Sheikh in Dawn and other places.
    I would edit my comments here if I could.
