Regram from @evazubeck - 🙏 Wazir Khan Mosque - wow 🙏 This must have been the most beautiful place I visited in Lahore. Prior to this trip, I was never a huge fan of mosaics and frescoes like these - I think their overabundance on Instagram ruined them for me 😂 But these ones here... In order to see them, you first have to come to Lahore, which for most travellers is already a hurdle! And THEN you have to have the balls to enter the neighbourhood of the Walled City, which used to be considered rather violent and unsafe. You walk down the narrow streets, motorbikes wheezing past centimetres away from you, street hawkers fixing their gaze on you as you walk past because you might be the only foreigner there that morning, spices and tobacco and fresh bread and Pakistani wedding dresses filling the walls around you, and an occasional scooter carrying two men and two goats. After a good few minutes, the street widens and there, on the left, the first mosaics of the Wazir Khan facade come into view. You enter through a small gate and, stepping in, you are suddenly transported to an oasis of peace. No sounds. Just the tapping of your feet against the walkway. And then you open your eyes. This is what you see.
