Mian Mishk Masjid

The Mian Mishk Masjid (1678) is one of the most interesting mosques in the region. It is named after its builder, an Abyssinian slave of Abul Hasan Tana Shah. The mosque stands at the end of a large courtyard lined with chambers which used to provide accommodation for travellers. The inscriptions over the east and west gates demonstrate the styles of calligraphy of different periods. It is a fine example of the Qutab Shahi style.
