A Report by Aga Khan Trust for Culture – World’s largest picture wall of Lahore

The world’s largest mural Picture Wall is situated inside the Lahore Fort

A Report by Aga Khan Trust for Culture - World’s largest picture wall of LahoreA report by Aga Khan Trust for Culture reveals that this wall was constructed of small brick masonry with lime mortar; the bricks used were a special size, specific to the Mughal period. It is also said that there are variety of decorative schemes used on the facade including the typologies of glazed tile mosaic work, filigree work, fresco painting, brick imitation work, glazed lime plaster, pietra dura work, stone fret work, cut and dressed brick work, and terracotta screens. I wonder what effort would have gone into the construction of this gigantic wall, which still stands majestically today inside the Fort.
