Northern Wall of Wazir Khan

The Northern wall of the Wazir Khan Mosque is also as unique as the other side. Unfortunately, the side was encroached upon by almost forty shops which were removed in 2012. In 2015 the conservation of the Northern side of Wazir Khan began with the technical assistance of Aga Khan Trust for Culture and funding of the Royal Norwegian Embassy. The conservation included the excavation of the Hujras and revealing the original ground level of the Mosque of Shah Jahan era. The ground levels exposed wonders and a retaining wall was constructed after the excavation and conservation of Hujras. At present this is completed and Hujras have been into art and crafts shops. These craft shops have the traditional items of Walled City Lahore and are a treat for the visitors and tourists.
