Badshahi Mosque Bans Wedding Photography


Badshahi Mosque is one of the most iconic landmarks in Lahore. It is a Mughal era Masjid that has become one of the most popular places for Nikkah, wedding ceremonies and photography. However, we have bad news for all the people who wanted to have their wedding photoshoot in Badshahi Masjid.
