The Wazir Khan Mosque in Lahore, Pakistan, is famous for its extensive faience tile work. It has been described as 'a mole on the cheek of Lahore'. It was built in seven years, starting around 16341635 AD, during the reign of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jehan. It was built by Hakim Shaikh Ilm-ud-din Ansari, a native of Chiniot, who rose to be the court physician to Shah Jahan and a governor of Lahore. He was commonly known as Wazir Khan, a popular title bestowed upon him (the word Wazir means 'minister' in Urdu and Persian). The mosque is inside the Inner City and is easiest accessed from Delhi Gate. The mosque contains some of the finest examples of Qashani tile work from the Mughal period.

You show fine ornate workings to the walls, modern intervention with seeing fans hanging from the ceiling.

Hafeez, you really need to start posting your images to the larger size of 800 for all to appreciate more as this size is a tad small.

A well composed shot, but I'd like to see the shot in a larger size (max 800 px on the longest side) and also the EXIF data.
