Bhong Mosque (Urdu: بھونگ مسجد‎) is located in the village of Bhong, Rahim Yar Khan District, Punjab Province, Pakistan. It was designed and constructed over a period of nearly 50 years (1932–1982) and won the Aga Khan Award for Architecture in 1986. The construction of the mosque was under control of Master Abdul Hameed (kamboh) who worked to make sure it was exquisite and a landmark for Pakistan.[1] A postage stamp depicting it was issued on May 12, 2004 in Pakistan.[2]
