In Lahore you can see the royal Badshahi Mosque. From 1674 it is the second-largest Pakistan mosque. The building is situated on a high platform that was built especially before the mosque. The religious building has the largest inner yard in the world, its length is 527 meters and 159 widths. The minarets high is 62 meters, together all these peculiarities make this mosque magnificent.
A huge building is decorated with three white marble cupolas. Near the main entrance, there is a two-tired 20 meters pavilion. This mosque is quite extraordinary and attracts people from the whole world. There is a small museum devoted to the Islamic relics. Among them, there are some unique values – the green prophet Muhammad’s turban and delicate scarfs, made by his daughter Fatima.
These relics became a reason of interesting stories. Until nowadays we don’t know about their appearance in the mosque. According to the main theory, they were given by the Conqueror Timur and originally, they were in Sheesh Mahal Palace. In 2002 the mosque has lost one of its relics – sandals of the prophet Muhammad. After this accident, the government wanted to close the museum and take the exponents to the Lahore’s museum but later was decided not to replace the relics. Next - Masjid Sultan
