Bhong Mosque, Pakistan

Another new country in my collection - actually it is not the first time that, after a long wait, i receive two postcards from a missing country about the same time, as it happened with Pakistan last winter. Cannot complain eh :)
The postcard shows  the Bhong Masjid in Southern Punjab, designed and constructed over a period of nearly 50 years (1932–1982) and winning the Aga Khan Award For Architecture in 1986. The mosque's design is a mix of Islamic styles, using rare and traditional materials such as ivory, teak, and onyx.
Many thanks to Hasnain and his use of diverse stamps :))
