Anyone knows about 'Kanjri ki Masjid' in Lahore and history behind it?
I read that its related to Maharaja Ranjeet Singh and his beloved Moran.

Moran won her way into his heart when Ranjit Singh was only 21 because she was unlike any woman he had known. She accompanied him when he went riding. He married Moran against the wishes of the entire community and despite the conditions that were laid down by Moran’s father and the head of her community Mian Samdu. The community was rehabilitated in Sharifpura, near Amritsar.
Moran and the maharaja went to Hardwar for a dip in the Ganga after their marriage in 1802. The marriage incurred the wrath of the entire Khalsa Panth and Ranjit Singh was called to the Akal Takht for retribution. He was proclaimed guilty and condemned to public flogging. He bowed before the Akal Takht and accepted the punishment. He was exempted with one kora and a fine.
He never minted a coin in his own name but he struck one in Moran’s name. She became known as Moran Sarkar and became a window to the common people who often brought their problems to her.

^ Such a twist , it is amazing that many not so good women end up making a masjid. i have heard some other stories of good deeds by such women.
Shaikh rasheed told some stories about the owenr of lal haveli .

Moran was not a prostitute and was just a nautch girl. Kanjri in Punjabi means dancing girl, though the term has become derogatory now.

I am not sure about this masjid, I believe it would be some where in interior Lahore. That's the real Lahore, but I have never lived there and frankly I don't think I can live there as its very congested.

I have seen kamran's baradari from far, but never been to the site though. It's near river Ravi.
