The prayer hall of the mosque is shaped dome like and is covered by three domes that all have a variety of different designs and colors to further add to the beauty of the mosque.

Qissa Khawani Bazaar

Probably one of the oldest and the most famous Bazaar of the country is the Qissa Khawani Bazaar. The bazaar is also commonly known as the ‘Street of Storytellers”.  Today, the bazaar holds a considerably different look than it did back in the day, with a combination of different teashops, clothing stores and different markets.
