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;

Have you visited this place before? Please share your experience in comments;

Going from Lahore to Shahdara Town and crossing the Ravi river bridge, one must turn his eyes towards a white, historical building covered with trees and crowded with many visitors; Situated at bank of bank of Ravi, this building is termed as Kamran Ki Baradari, the only significant architectural structure built by Prince Kamran exists today;

That was April of last year when, coming back from Shahdara town, I instantly turned my car on side road leading to this building, just to extinguish the thrust of  my saunterer soul;

while moving on canal road Lahore, if you go towards Mugalpura underpass coming from The Mall, then you have to cross railway tracks over road; At this place if you look towards your left side, you’ll have a look over a tomb in miserablecondition. This is a tomb of Khan-e-Jahan Bahadur Jang Kokaltash. Daily thousands of people watch this tomb when they move there but very very few know what is it.
