Badshahi Mosque

The splendid Badshahi Mosque ranks among the world's largest, and the city of Lahore's finest attractions. Apart from elaborate decor and architectural detail, mosque grounds contain the Tomb of Allama Iqbal, a prominent Pakistani philosopher and poet. It's beautifully illuminated at night; look over from the top floor of a restaurant in nearby Food Street.

Do & See

Start your tour of Lahore inside the old walled city, a historic and relatively compact area that's easy to get around on foot. Some of Lahore's major attractions, such as the Lahore Fort and Badshahi Mosque, with the nearby new Food Street (in Fort Road) are located here, at the heart of the sprawling greater city, which holds further sights and experiences.
