Badshahi Mosque

by Pakistan - پاکستø§Ù† November. 10, 2007 11214 views

The Badshahi Mosque (Urdu: بادشاھی مسجد), or the ‘Emperor’s Mosque', was built in 1673 by the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb in Lahore, Pakistan. It is one of the city's best known landmarks, and a major tourist attraction epitomizing the beauty and grandeur of the Mughal era. Capable of accommodating over 55,000 worshippers, it is the second largest mosque in Pakistan, after the Faisal Mosque in Islamabad. The architecture and design of the Badshahi Masjid is closely related to the Jama Masjid in Delhi, India, which was built in 1648 by Aurangzeb's father and predecessor, emperor Shah Jahan. - wiki [en.wikipedia.org]
