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.

  • The mosque, the area all are so beautiful. I can’t walk there all day and never get tired. The is one of the must visit places in Lahore and all Pakistan. This city is love ❤️. Highly recommend to walk and have some street food and enjoy the place
  • The amount of hard work that would have been went to make this mosque and its detailed work is insane. Every corner and every wall is filled with beautiful artwork which makes it unique. Some area of the mosque is not in good condition which needs maintenance and repair work. Other than that this mosque is a must visit when in Lahore. Highly recommended.
