Just last week I had picked up a few coins of Lahore mint of different emperors and all had the Dar al Khilafat Lahore on top. This looked different...... So I was trying to figure it out as it sure was a mint with the name starting with L and without epithet. Lakhnau or Lakhnow was the only other one which fitted this.......

Dear Amit, I presume it must be 'dar al-Sultanat lahore' ;)

Dear Oesho,
Yes......and ....... Thanks a lot for pointing it out. I was still reading (if you call it reading as I can only see the symbols and not yet read the words fully) it as Khilafat.
