Faisal Mosque

It was a nice place to see, one of the largest mosques in the world I'm told. While we couldn't go in b/c of its limited opening times, we were able to walk around and shop in the gift shops :) Be far warned, you want to make sure you have socks on b/c you have to take off your shoes and the marble is COLD!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Organized streets, clean for the most part, cabs are cheap
  • Cons:not as fun as lahore, nothing much to do
  • In a nutshell:great for people who are a little nervous about being a foreigner in Pakistan
