Badshahi Mosque is the second largest mosque in Pakistan, capable of accomodating 55,000 worshippers, the largest mosque is the Faisal Mosque in Islamabad.
It was built in 1674 during the reign of Emperor Aurangzeb, the last of great Mughal ruler. The mosque is attached to the Royal Fort. The front gates of the two buildings face each other across a courtyard.
The facade of the prayer hall was inspired by the Friday Mosque in Delhi, but with octagonal minarets instead of the square ones at the Friday Mosque.
If you choose to dine at Coocos Den on an evening you will see the mosque lit up against the evening sky, it is one of the most beautiful views that you will see whilst visiting Pakistan.
