The Masjid on the other side is considered one of the most beautiful Mughal mosque in Pakistan. The kasha kari, title work and frescos makes it the most decorated mosque of Pakistan.
4) Canal Road:
During festivals and especially during the start of spring the most beautiful road to travel in Lahore is the canal road.
The water, trees, lightning and the decoration makes it one of the most beautiful road to travel. It will be a unique experience no matter from which part of world you came.
5) Shalimar Garden:
Most probably you have heard that Mughal rulers loved green gardens, you will believe this after visiting Mughal era Shalimar Bagh. It is spread over an area of 16 acres, during Mughal era part of the bagh was for used for guests while part was open for public.
It contains 410 fountains and 5 water cascades, unfortunately the fountain are no more in working condition. One thinks if without fountains the park looks so beautiful how majestic it will look with 410 working fountains.
