One of the most awe inspiring structure of the ancient times, "The Moorish Mosque, Kapurthala City" in Punjab was erected by the royal King of the region "Jagatjit Singh" in 1930. The Moorish Mosque of the Kapurthala city is an architectural wonder of the by gone days of the golden era. The last King of the city Shri Jagatjit Singh had hired a French architect to construct the lavish building.

Modeled after the Qutbiya Mosque of Marakesh in Moracco, the sprawling building of "The Moorish Mosque" is an important landmark of the ancient city of Kapurthala. The Moorish Mosque attracts several tourist from far and near the area.

Apart from the religious significance, the structure draws the attention of every passerby and tourist who are absolutely overwhelmed by the splendid monument.

This is Karachi, Pakistan - the City of Lights.

The place photographed is the newly constructed Bagh-i-Ibn-e-Qasim in Clifton - the biggest park in Pakistan (so far). The monument focused in the photograph is the Jehangir Kothari Parade.

The park is quite scenic and beautiful, especially at night when it's fully lit up.
