8 Mosques Of Bahria Town

Introduction:

There is no doubt about the fact that Bahria Town Lahore is known for many attractions as compared to any other housing society in all over Pakistan. And it changed the concept of living with its enormous and essential facilities and features. Due to all the new changes and innovations many other housing socities are now adopting the ways followed by Bahria Town. Bahria Town introduced the concept of own Electric power plant to avoid load shedding issues and all of their electrification are underground. Its Hospitals, Education facilities, Cinemas, Play Grounds, Restaurants, Living standards and all other recreational activities have attracted a lot of people in past few years.

 

Most Visited Places in Bahria Town:

I remember that when I was in my school life, in Lahore, we had only few places to visit at that time, like Zoo, Minar-e-Pakistan, Badshahi Mosque, Shalimar Gardens and Shahi Qilla. But now Bahria Town has been added to the list of must visit places by providing various other options. It has now become one of the best spot for many visitors to spend their leisure time. I have also witnessed that many trips of students from Lahore and other surrounding areas come to Bahria Town. The most visited place in recent days in Bahria Town, is the replica of Eiffel tower and Grand Jamya Masjid. Eiffel tower is the third most largest copy of Eiffle tower, in the world after Paris and China. Recently, Cinegold Plex has opened in Bahria Town, which is a Pakistan first 3D gold cinema with state of the art structure. It is also become a new destination for residents of Lahore. However, there are number of choices to visit in Bahria Town and everyone is  familiar with it. And the pinpointing more deeply about all the places of Bahria Town could take more time.

 

For now, the only thing I chose to share, are the Mosques of Bahria Town Lahore. These Mosques in Bahria Town are one of the things which have impressed me and forced me to write about them. Mostly people only talk about the Grand Jamya Masjid. And solely, Bahria Grand Jamya Mosque is a stand-out among all, but there are other seven Mosques in Town as-well. Residents of Bahria Town may be accustomed with all the Mosques but visitors may not know about them other than Grand Jamya Mosque. All of them have uniquely architectural feats, which drift your mind to visit them atleast once. With all other amenities and facilities Bahria Town, has also bring-in the idea of separate Mosque for each Sector/Block. Indeed, in every Bahria Town’s project, certainly its Mosques has become the identity of Bahria Town.

Grand Jamya Masjid:

Well, it is legit that the Grand Jamya Masjid is now the identity of Bahria Town. But not just Bahria Town Lahore, it also gathered pertinent attraction from all over the Pakistan. Eiffle Tower and Grand Jamya Masjid has been the top visited and crowd-pleaser places in Bahria Town. It was constructed in 2014 and it took more than four six years to complete. Including many artistic and inventive characteristic made it a unique masterpiece.

We all know that it is the world’s 7th largest and Pakistan’s largest Mosque. It was desigend by renowned architect ‘Nayyar Ali Dada’ and it was inaugurated on Eid-ul-Adha, 2014. Recently, I got to know about the more interesting facts which I was un-aware off. Despite of its size and structure, there are many other distinctive salient features that has made it more noticeable and historical.

 

  1. The main Dome of Mosque has surrounded by other twenty small Domes.
  2. It has four Minarets, each Minaret standing tall at 165 feet.
  3. All of its carpetes are customised and imported from Turkey, and there are over fifty ‘Persian Chandeliers’. Beneath the carpet, there are three layers of cushioning, making it more comfortable.
  4. Minbar of Imam is designed in such a way that, if the hall is full, it is visible from all the sides of the hall. And it made from ‘Sheesham’.
  5. The voice of Imam naturally travel through main Dome to the other surrounding Domes.
  6. Exterior consist of forty million, 2.5 inch hand-made Multani tiles, made with Multani-Matti.
  7. All of these tiles are placed manually by Craftsmen.
  8. It has the capacity to adjust Seventy thousand people at a time.
Shower Cabinets For ‘Ghussal’:

Bahria Grand Jamya Masjid has a separate shower rooms for ‘Ghussal’. It is located at basment area and has a separate entrance. With marbel tiling and fixtures, this area have a capacity to accommodate hundreds of people at a time.

Art Gallery & Women Prayer Area(first floor):

Grand Jamiya Masjid Karachi:

The construction of Grand Jamya Masjid Karachi have already started in 2015. The Grand Jamia Masjid in Bahria Town Karachi is being constructed on top of a 60 feet. And the groundbreaking ceremony has already conducted by eldest employee (73 years of age) of Bahria Town. After its completion it will become the World’s third largest Mosque after Masjid-ul-Haram and Masjid-ul-Nabvi. And it has the capacity of 800,000 ‘Namzis’. Approximately, 12 times more capacity than Lahore’s Grand Jamya Masjid. Surrounded by arch-shaped walls and it has only one Minaret standing tall at 365 feet high. And it will be protected by storms and powered by Thermal Power Plant. It includes:

 

  • Islamic Research Centre.
  • Islamic Museum.
  • Islamic Cultural Centre.
  • International Islamic Univeristy.

Jamya Masjid Abu Zar Ghafari:

 

I think that Jamya Masjid ‘Abu Zar Ghafari’ is the second most alluring and magnificent architectural Mosque. The construction of this Mosque has completed in 2016. And it is the only Mosque which is located at Sector F.

 

  • The Mosque have only one central Dome and one Minaret.
  • There are two fountains that are placed at one side of the Mosque.
  • It has the room for more than 7000 Namazis.
  • Whole Mosque(internally and externally) is the combination of black and white tiles, making it more mesmerising.
  • The ‘Wazu’ area of this Mosque is totally different and comfortably designed as comapred to all other Mosques.
  • A small portion of books is available at this Mosque.

Al-Falah Mosque Executive Lodges:

Al-Falah Mosque in Bahria Town is nestled between the Executive lodges and Overseas Enclave. Though, all the Mosques in Bahria Town, are impressive due to its own structure and beauty. But I have graded this Mosque on third number due to its idiosyncratic carving and calligraphy.

 

  • The most interesting fact about this Mosque, is that, it have the oldest ‘Holy Quran’ unique manuscripts, which are about 200-300 years old.
  • It has the capacity to accommodate more than 1500 ‘Namazis’ at a time.
  • It has two separate areas for ‘Wazu’, which can be seen in picture in front of the Mosque.

Abu Bakar Saddique(R.A) Masjid:

Abu Bakar Saddique(R.A), Mosque is the forth most attractive Mosque in Bahria Town. It is located in the middle of Umar and Gulbahar Block.

This Mosque has also the capacity of more than 3,000 Namazis at one time. The Dome and Minaret of this Mosque is simple. But on Dome ‘Kalma Tayyaba’ is written on it. The above pictures are from its back and front side. The simple colour combination of green and off-white, makes it more elegant and graceful.

Qurtaba Masjid:

Qurtaba Mosque is located at Central Avenue, Safari Villas, adjacent to Safari Mall. It looks like a small one, but it can also accomdate more than 5000 Namazis at one time.

 

  • This Mosuqe is attached with a lawn and it is one of the low roof Mosque, which is in round shape.
  • There is no Dome attached to this Mosque, however it only have one Minaret.
  • The most simple yet adorable Mosque in Bahria Town.

Sarwar Masjid:

Sarwar Mosque is located at CC block, Sector D, near to Mcdonalds. This Mosque can accommodate more than 2000 Namazis.

Ali Masjid:

Ali Masjid is located at Ali block, it can accommodate approximately more than 1500 Namzis at one time. This Mosuqe shows the simplicity and appealing due to its unique colour. Having only one Minaret and four small Domes.

Rafi Masjid:

Rafi Masjid is located at Rafi Block. At a  time, about 2000 Namazis  can offer prayer at this Mosque. This Msoque may not clench your attention because of its simple design and architect. But the use of white coloured tiles purely makes it visible to the entire area that surrounds it. It have only one small Dome and one square shaped Minaret.

 

Bahria Town is on top of the list by having maximum numbers of Mosques. each Mosque in Bahria town have a separate and spacious car parking area. All Mosques are equipped with all basic things, centrally air-conditioned, carpeted and well maintained.

Attique Nehari House Is Closed

It seems like that the continuity of closings and quiting of many names from Bahria Town wouldn’t stop. Undoubtedly, it takes too much effort to set up a new business but it is more torturous to finally close it. Well, there is now another victim of this undesireable closing in Bahria Town which is ‘Attique Nehari House’. And it was the only option specifically for ‘Nehari’ in Town.

 

I have written about it at the time of its opening in start of October. Unfortunately, yesterday I got to know that it is also closed now like many others. The only reason of its closing is that, they was unable to get customer’s attraction. It was located at 96-A commercial area, Sector C near to Grand Jamya Mosque and adjacent to main boulevard.

 

Besides that there is another options is now available for ‘Nehari’. Because Biryani Master has started selling all kinds of Nehari at their branch.

Fresh Fruitly Juice

Summers has end now, but the longing for fresh juices and shakes will never end. And the health benefits of fresh jucies are evident, if they are away from any mixing and artificial flavours. Well, we have many options for fresh juices, smoothies and shakes now. But more precisely Ice-land somehow changed the concept of typical way of jucies and it is one of the longest chain in Lahore. Recently one of the Ice-land outlet has also opened in Bahria Town. There are also other few juice shops are opened in town before Ice-land. And most of the shops in Bahria Town have already been following Ice-land, like Ice-fresh, Ice-blend, Ice-chill and Ice-food etc. For all the names of these juice shops, you can have a look in our telephone directory.

 

Keeping this up with these juice shops in Bahria Town, a new shop by the name of ‘Fresh Fruitly Juice’ is going to open soon. Alongside juices, they will sell Shakes, Ice-cream and all kinds of Chats. I took this picture about two days ago, and they have set all the sittings, machines and counters to make a start. So, might be it will open in a day or two. I will update here about it again with more details after visiting it.
