If you are captivated by fairytale beauty of Mughal era, so you can visit one of its greatest treasures – mosque Bdashahi (Emperor's Mosque) in the old part of Lahore lying in the Pakistani part of Punjab. It is not only beautiful, but it has other “the most” – it is also one of the largest in the world /it was the largest in the world for more than 300 years/. In addition, in the close neighborhood is Lahore fort, which can be visited as well.

You will come first to Hazuri Bagh gardens that separate the mosque Badshahi from Lahaure fort Shahi Qila. In the middle is typical pavilion Baradari. Behind it rises the entrance gate to the pavilion of the mosque.
