Maryam Zamani Mosque
پڑھنے کا وقت: 2 منٹ The Mosque of Mariyam Zamani Begum commonly referred to as Begum Shahi Mosque is an early 17th-century mosque situated in the Walled City of Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. The mosque was built during the reign of Mughal Emperor Jahangir in honour of his mother. It is one of Lahore’s earliest surviving examples of a Mughal-era mosque, and influenced construction of the larger Wazir Khan Mosque a few decades later. The mosque has been encroached upon by several shops, and views of the mosque from the Akbari Gate of the Lahore Fort have been obstructed by illegally constructed tyre shops. In July 2016, the Walled City of Lahore Authority announced that the shops would be removed, and the mosque would also be conserved and restored. The mosque was built during the reign of Mughal Emperor Jahangir in the honour of his mother, Begum Mariyam Zamani, who was also known as ‘Maharani Jodha Bai’. Mariyam Zamani was also a wife of Mughal Emperor, Akbar. The mosque is located inside the old Masti Gate in the Walled City of Lahore.
