Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Admire walls decorated in intricate floral patterns and beautiful "faience" tile work at Masjid Wazir Khan (Wazir Khan Mosque), 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.

One of the few Mughal Era structures to have stood the test of time. Very beautiful. But like others, needs government's attention.
It's a classical piece of artistic work from the Mughal Era. It's a beautiful mosque surrounded by lots of shops and heavy crowd all day.
Very nice and rich place historically To see the rich history of culture of Lahore one must visit the place and whole walled city as well by walk
An excellent historical masjid. Needs attention regarding maintenance.
