  • Its vast and lovely place to visit. Gardens nearby are really nice. There is a small museum in there. Don't forget to visit it. 
  • Worst experience ever. We are not allowed to take dslr there. They said that cameras are not allowed but you can take pictures with mobile camera. WTF! Picture is picture whether you take it from mobile or dslr. I can't understand this ever stupid rule. If anyone understand it please explain to me also.
  • One of the must see, if you are on Lahore. The sight of hundreds of thousands muslims offering their prayers during eid and ramdan is very awe inspiring. This is a classic Mughal era building and even more accessible after development of a better road infrastructure.
  • Great cultural heritage of mughal Muslims. The mosque is built architecturally beautiful and large. The place seems to be spiritual.
  • its beautiful n historical place. when we visit it feel that i m in back era of mughal empire
  • Visited this historical & beautiful mosque only a once for the Eid Prayer - it was an extraordinary experience to be praying inside this architectural masterpiece constructed during the Mughal Era. Highly recommended to anyone who visits Lahore.
