Masjid Wazir Khan, Lahore Pakistan;

Posted on Updated on

Once attributed as mole on the face of Lahore, this masjid is still unique in its kind;

Masjid Wazir khan is famous for its extensive faience tile work. Built in seven years, starting around 1634–1635 AD, during the reign of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jehan. It was built by Hakim Shaikh Ilm-ud-din Ansari, a native of Chiniot, who rose to be the court physician to Shah Jahan and a governor of Lahore. (from wikipedia)

I have a visit of this masjid last month, and was just stunned when I saw its design and artwork; For me its far more beautiful then the Badshahi masjid of Lahore; You can see my photo shot of this masjid here;
