Badshahi Mosque

(3 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

ImageThe Badshahi Mosque is arguably the most famous of Lahore’s mosques. This magnificent red sandstone structure was built during the Mughal era in the 1600s by the emperor Aurangzeb who was famous for his religiosity and intolerance. The mosque’s four minarets soar into the sky and are visible from afar. Tourists must not wear shorts, women must be modestly dressed and shoes must be taken off before entering. The mosque is truly breathtaking and is also the burial site of the famous Pakistani poet and philosopher Allama Iqbal.
