Masjid Wazir Khan, Lahore

4.8
#3 of 43 in Things to do in Lahore
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. Using our custom trip planner, Lahore attractions like Masjid Wazir Khan can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

    One needs to go very early in the morning or on a Sunday to avoid the traffic as this mosque is in the middle of the old city of Lahore. A magnificent piece of architecture which, sadly ...is in ruins...  more »

    Absolutely loved the place and surroundings. The restoration work being done under the auspices of the World Bank is world class and gave a new sense of hope that our heritage can be preserved.  more »

    Although getting to the Masjid is a little tough, however the views inside and the ambiance around the walled city is worth the trudge. The place takes you back in time as the surroundings are pretty much in their old shape.

    A master piece of Mughal Architecture located deep inside the Walled city of Lahore. Tourists must visit this place as walled city is truly a heart of Lahore.

Where to stay in Lahore

Visitors are met with a great deal of choice when deciding where to stay in Lahore, and not just because of the range of accommodations available. In this regularly congested city, travel can be a real pain, so the advantages and disadvantages of each district need to be weighed against each other. Each area has a mix of standard and luxury hotels, as well as guesthouses with private and shared rooms. The old town in the north has a wealth of architectural highlights to see, but little to do after dark. Further to the south, the Mall Road area has some chain hotels, restaurants, and places to go in the evening, while the areas of Defence and Gulberg have become synonymous with hotels and nightlife options.
