Home > Wazir Khan Masjid


Located within Chowk Wazir Khan, an ancient square in the Walled City of Lahore which is connected to the most popular of the thirteen gates of old Lahore, Delhi Gate, is the Wazir Khan Masjid. It was built in the rule of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan and is the only mosque which was build inside a bazaar in its time. Intricately decorated walls with Arabic calligraphy, faience tile work, muqarnas and delicate carvings, chevron patterns of the dome roof, colorful artwork and a majestic courtyard are the soul of this grand structure.
