Create an itinerary including Masjid Wazir Khan
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. Put Masjid Wazir Khan and other Lahore attractions into our Lahore trip itinerary builder tool, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Lahore takes pride that this Masjid is located within old city walls ,there wasn’t a designated area for females to pray but spirituality is there in this 600 year old Masjid.
