About Sidi Bashir Mosque

This ancient mosque was constructed way back in 1452, but only the gateway and the minarets of the structure remain today. The Sidi Bashir Mosque comprises unique shaking minarets that have a unique swing structure because of which they look interesting even from a considerable distance. While most say it was made by Sidi Bashir, who was a servant of Sultan Ahmed Shah, others say it was built by a nobleman of Muhammed Begada. The main body of the structure was destroyed in 1753 following a war between the Marathas and the Khans. Although much of the mosque doesn’t exist anymore, the pillars reflect a lot of history. Interestingly, while the foot of the minarets is dilapidated, the staircase can still be used. There are two pillars here, and both of them have three floors. There are curved balconies on the exterior, which look interesting. Many intrigued architects come to this place to understand its architecture.
