Admire walls decorated in intricate floral patterns and beautiful "faience" tile work at Masjid Wazir Khan, a prime example of Mughal architecture. Built in only 7 years between 1634-1635, the mosque displays Koran verses and Persian poetry in bright colors including cobalt, blue, green, and yellow, embellished with glazed tile mosaics and written in elegant calligraphy. Engraved honeycomb patterns on the ceiling and in the minarets resemble the famous Alhambra in Spain. An unusual feature are the minarets which soar into the air 30 m (100 ft) high, the first of their kind for this type of mosque in Lahore.

A truly incredible structure! Really makes you think back to the time it was constructed and the techniques that were used to do so. The intricacy and details on the structure are really pretty and mind boggling, considering the short amount of time that it was made in.
You can feel going back in time and witnessing history that is centuries old. This mosque and the surrounding area is so magical and awe inspiring. It makes me feel quite insignificant to be honest. Like history glaring with an immortal glance
