Mahabat Khan Mosque

The splendid Mahabat Khan Mosque is a fine example of 17th century Mughal architecture, with its ornate interior and courtyard water reservoir especially inviting to visitors. Entry is allowed, and private tour guides offer their services at a moderate fee.

Do & See

Given that most city exploration is done during daylight hours, there is plenty to easily fill a space of a few days. Apart from the must-dos of Peshawar Museum and the Old Town, one unusual attraction is the 1920s Khyber Railway, trips on which are only possible by prior appointment. Depending on their planned time of travel, adventure-seekers might want to look into visiting one of the notorious gun factories in the outlying Tribal Areas (or the infamous Darra Adam Khel), but doing so outside of a guided tour can be highly dangerous and is strongly advised against.
