Simple maintenance. The mosque didn't always get even this. Emily Eden visited in 1838 and wrote: "I went with X. to an enamelled mosque in the city, which must have been splendid in the mussulman days, but the Sikhs keep up nothing of the sort." (Up the Country, 1866, quoted in Aijazuddin, Lahore: Illustrated Views, 1991, p. 107.)

Lockyard Kipling in 1890 had just about given up on the mosque's preservation: "This beautiful building is in itself a school of design; but year by year less attention seems to be paid to its maintenance, and the painted work is in a dilapidated state of neglect. Under these circumstances, it seems of the highest importance to secure careful copies for preservation in the Museum and School...." (Aijazuddin, 1991, p. 113.)
