The magnificent Wazir Khan Mosque is one of Lahore’s most iconic landmarks. It can be reached by traversing along the Shahi Guzargah (Royal Trail), through the Delhi Gate. During Ramazan, the Mosque is frequented by even more people from across the city, especially for taraweeh prayers.
Mughal architecture… Wazir Khan Mosque is named after Sheikh Ilm-ud-din Ansari – a wazir at Emperor Shah Jehan’s court, who conceived, designed and oversaw the mosque’s construction, which began in 1634. The Mosque boasts of an impressive dome and octagonal minarets; its walls are embellished with eye-catching calligraphy. Several areas of the mosque are currently being restored, but this does not pose any hindrance to worshippers.
