Visit the magnificent moghul mosque. The museum contains a turban and hair of the Prophet Muhammad (saw), a turban of Hazrat Ali (ra) and other incredibly moving items for Muslims. A museum from the heavens.
The environs within and around the fort and mosque areas are quite plush. Well laid out and trimmed gardens where you can relax and bask in the lovely sunshine away from the polluted city traffic.
Its a new area to picnic in the late afternoons.
This is within the same grounds as the Lahore Fort, so make sure you plan PLENTY of time to do both of these things. Seeing the inside of the Masjid won't take so long really, but walking around and taking pictures of the outside could prove to be a little while if you like that sort of thing. You pay only 10 rupees if you drive your own car into the grounds and that is for both the Masjid and the Fort.

One of the largest mosques in the world!!! The open courtyard is said to be capable of holding at least 60,000 people!
It was built in 1673 by the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb in Lahore, Pakistan, and is the largest Mughal mosque and one of the best known landmarks in the Indian Subcontinent.
