Lahore History Tour – Installment #23

Continuing from the last post in which we started the tour of Moti Mosque of the Lahore Fort, today we visit the beautiful white marble domes of the mosque as well as the intricate internal supporting marble arches.


Three compartments of the front aisle, the central one, and those at the extreme ends are covered by domes, while the remaining compartments of both aisles have vaulting.


The central compartment of the near aisle contains a mihrab deeply recessed in the back wall within the outlines of a cuspid arch. Adjacent to it on the north stands a maimbar (pulpit) of marble.
