We propose to create an effective magnetic field for photons in photonic crystal resonator lattices using the magneto-optical effect. The inter-resonator coupling is mediated by magneto-optical waveguides or magneto-optical resonators, and thus the coupling between the nearest-neighbor photonic crystal resonators acquire a direction-dependent phase. The effective magnetic field can be realized with a proper choice of the spatial distribution of such a direction-dependent phase.
