Masjid Jamia Khudabad
Built during the rapid decline of the Mughal Empire in the first two decades of the 18th century, the Jamia Khudabad Mosque (the Royal Mosque of Khudabad) was likely intended to showcase the wealth and power of the local governor, Mian Yar Muhammad Kalhoro. The difficulties inherent in maintaining a structure like the Khudabad mosque have unfortunately left this once outstanding building in poor shape. That is why, in 2015, CyArk trained a team of students at the prestigious Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) to scan and document what remains at the site. This digital data can be used to study what remains of the beautiful kashi tile work and fresco paintings, as well as the notable architecture and proportions of the site. Additionally, these scans will prove to be an invaluable resource in the future should the government of Pakistan choose to further restore or reconstruct this Mughal marvel.
