Lahore is the capital of the province of Punjab, in northeastern Pakistan, besides being the second most populous in the whole country, and has several architectural gems to visit. One of them, which is also all a religious symbol, is the Badshahi Mosque, which is also known as the Royal Mosque, the second temple of this religion in size of the country and the fifth worldwide.

The temple was commanded to do by the sixth Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb in the second half of the seventeenth century and was completed in the year 1673. This impressive building eventually became one of the symbols of this city and one of its major attractions is a great representation of the beauty and grandeur of the era in which it was built there.

In the Badshahi Mosque fit 55,000 people and when visitors come to her are surprised by its beauty and majestic it is, being the largest in the world for some time. Its exterior is decorated with some stone carvings and marble layers of red sandstone, and in it you can see the influence Indo-Greek, Indian and central Asia.
