The Badshahi Masjid (بادشاهى مسجد), literally the 'Royal Mosque', was built in 1674 by Aurangzeb. It is one of Lahore's best known landmarks, and epitomizes the beauty and grandeur of the Mughal era. Capable of accommodating 50,000 worshippers, it is the largest mosque in Pakistan.
Recently a small museum has also been added to the mosque complex. It contains many artifacts considered holy to Muslims.
