From Lahore Fort to Data Darbar, streets of Bhati Gate to Anarkali food street; my father made sure that Lahore’s heritage was a major part of my upbringing.
A December’s cold morning brought few class fellows back to University which they graduated four years ago. Time passed so quickly when they switched from student to professional life.
The mosque is said to date from 1659 - 1668-69 and is also known as the Chinianwali Masjid because of the extraordinary mosaic tile work (Kashi Kari) for which the reign of Shah Jahan was famous. It was completed during Aurangzeb's reign.
