Wazir Khan Masjid Lahore Restoration

Wazir Khan Masjid Lahore Restoration

Wazir Khan Masjid is located in old Walled City of Lahore. It was built in 17th century, 1634-1641, by governor of Lahore Hakim Ilam ud Din Ansari AKA Wazir Khan on the orders of HIM Emperor Shah Jahan 1. Wazir Khan Mosque is famous for its beautiful layout plan, three, domes and 4 minarets with beautiful canopies. Wazir Khan Mosque is one of the most beautiful mosques of the world due to kasha-kari work and colorful interiors.

Renovation of Wazir Khan Mosque

The Mosque structure was deteriorating until efforts to conserve the mosque started in 2009 under the supervision of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture and the Government of Punjab. Financial contributions were from the governments of Germany, Norway, and the United States. Conservation work started in 2013 when Royal Embassy Norway provided the funds to restore the northern façade of the mosque. This phase of restoration completed in 2016 and during this time work on eastern facade also started. Restoration of eastern facade of Wazir Khan Mosque was financed by US Embassy. The extensive conservation work was carried out with great details. Original materials have been used for the renovation work to bring back the glory of original structure, details and settings. Now conservation work is complete and Mosque will be opened for the general public shortly.

The biggest threat to mosque was the encroachments and shops on both sides of main entrance gate. According to the historians, shops were rented out to the people for the up-keeping of the mosque. Now all encroachments and shops have been removed. The forecourt has been developed in front of the main gate. The forecourt has low boundary wall that will protect the mosque from encroachments. Forecourt will be used for planting beautiful trees and also for cultural events like Qawwali & Mushaira.

      Everyone has interpenetrated the panama case decision according to their wishes
      But for me
      Our beloved PRIME MINISTER is not given clean chit
      2 honorable judges have disqualified PM
      Case will be investigated for more 2 months
      NAB has failed as per SC
      Hudabia Paper Mill case will be re opened

      Property prices will fall due to zero tolerance by SUPREME COURT on corruption or black money

      When a popular Prime Minister MP not spared, why any other criminal.
      END OF BLACK MONEY
      END OF SATTA IN REAL ESTATE
      PRICES WILL CRASH
