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

Top destination around Badshahi Mosque - Lahore

After that, the Sikh period started in Lahore. Once again, the city became the capital. In 1848, when the British were fighting with the Sikhs, the British army became the winner. Lahore became a part of British India. The new rulers decided to rebuild Lahore. Thanks to that, the city got a new, Indo-Mauritanian look. In the 40s of the 20th century, after the partition of India and the establishment of a new country – Pakistan – Lahore became the epicenter of conflict between the two countries. Nowadays, Lahore is an important cultural center of Pakistan.

There are many various landmarks in Lahore that strike tourists with their grandeur. The Lahore Fort is one of the major attractions of the Pakistani city. The citadel occupies an area of almost twenty hectares. It was built at the end of the 12th century. Initially, this was the residence of Muhammad Ghori. Many different forces were trying to conquer the building because it was located at the crossing of the Persian kingdom, India, and Tibet. This fact made the castle very popular, and so many forces wanted to own it. After numerous fights for the castle, the stronghold was destroyed and repaired several times.
