Shah Jahan Mosque [Trip]

A great trip to Shah Jahan Mosque, Thatta, Sindh.

One of the greatest trip with my great fellow photographers to one of the best architecture I’ve seen. It is so amazing to see how these lovely buildings and mosques were made without the technology we have today! The feelings to capture the walls, the designs, the texture was just amazing.

The Shah Jahan Mosque was built in the reign of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan. It is located in ThattaSindh province, Pakistan. It has been on the tentative UNESCO World Heritage list since 1993.

In the town of Thatta (100 km / 60 miles from Karachi) itself, there is famous Shahjahani Mosque with its beautiful architecture. This mosque was built in 1647 during the reign of Mughal King Shah Jahan, also known as the builder King. The mosque is built with red bricks with blue colored glaze tiles probably imported from another Sindh’s town of Hala. The mosque has overall 93 domes and it is world’s largest mosque having such number of domes. It has been built keeping acoustics in mind. A person speaking inside one end of the dome can be heard at the other end when the speech exceeds 100 decibels.It was a gift from Shahjahan to people of Sindh For their Hospitality

The trip concluded with a great lunch by our great brother Syed Muhammad Irfan. We had some young upcoming photographers with us who can be seen in THIS ALBUM . Our team included Furqan Moosani (+junior), Muhammad Ahmed, Sameer, Rizwan Bhiriya (+junior), Muhammad Junaid, Imran Hafeez, Naveed Channa, Aadil Jadoon(+junior)


Israr Shah.
