  • A true architectural gem in Pakistan. Everything is perfectly fine with the structure. But as for maintenance, it seems that the mosque is not being maintained by a private company, instead is managed by public sector to its fate. You can clearly observed that from the condition of cleanliness etc... A true architectural gem in Pakistan. Everything is perfectly fine with the structure.

  • Such a wonderful piece of architecture. It is a sacred place of worship and I have noticed that it is often the local people who are not showing respect by making noise and also not disposing trash properly. I have seen people from other countries who come to visit here and are respectful towards the place and culture. The government should be providing with more facilities to non locals and also making sure there are easier and more opportunities for example when it comes to leaving your shoes at the main entrance and disposing off trash.
