Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Was lucky enough to visit this beautiful Mosque, built in the era of Shah Jahan, with some local friends.
As someone from Scotland, I already felt ultra conspicuous, despite my attempts at local dress and as someone who has the deepest respect for all faiths, would never have contemplated even daring to take a photo while people were worshipping. However, I was encouraged by my hosts and reveled in the structures aging beauty.
The locals stared, but then they stared everywhere I went. They’ve been deprived of visitors for so long and they’ve curios.
Things are changing. Gone are drugs and guns. Come and visit the most friendly and hospitable people on earth.

The Mahabat Khan Mosque is a 17th-century Mughal-era mosque in Peshawar, Pakistan. The mosque was built in 1630, and named after the Mughal governor of Peshawar, Nawab Mahabat Khan bin Ali Mardan Khan. The mosque's white marble façade is considered to be one of Peshawar's most iconic sights.
The Mosque is located and approachable form congested surrounded Bazars, while visiting this historical masterpiece, I parked my car at Hakeem Ullah Jan road and walked through Sarafa Bazar and entered from South Entrance gate. Mosque has three side entrance, Main entrance is from West side.
Inside the Mosque its open courtyard has a centrally-located ablution pool and a single row of rooms lining the exterior walls. The prayer hall is rectangular in shape. The hall is flanked by two tall minarets, which are divided into three sections. The façade of the prayer hall is also capped by 6 smaller decorative minarets that flank the mosque's 5 arched entryways, with an additional 2 minarets flanking the set of 6. The prayer hall is capped by 3 fluted domes. The roofline rises from the outer edges, towards the centre by a series of four small incremental height increases. The roofline is embellished with numerous merlons. The top of the mosque's white marble façade is capped by cavettos, or concave molding. 5 arched portals offer entry into the main prayer hall. The central arch is the tallest, and features cusped arches typical of the Mughal style. The central arch is flanked by two slightly shorter un-cusped arches that are designed in the Persian and Central Asian style. These arches are flanked by a smaller arch decorated in a similar style, and row of 7 small arched portals are found above the tip of each arch. The three central arched portals are embellished with muqarnas above the row of 7 mini-arched portals, while the outermost arches are instead decorated with ghalib kari, or a network of ribs made of stucco and plaster that are applied to curved surfaces in the archways for decorative purposes. Archways into the mosque are also flanked by vegetal motifs along their upper curves, which unlike the green motifs at Badshahi Mosque, are multi-coloured. Both the interior and exterior feature panels embellished with floral motifs and Quranic calligraphy. The interior of the prayer hall is sheltered beneath the three low fluted domes and is eloquently painted with floral and geometric designs.

Beautiful mosque. I am much impressed by the interior simplicity and classical arts on the wall of mosque.It is not too much large. 15-20 minutes of good season is enough to watch the whole mosque.
