About Adhai Din Ka Jhonpra

Originally a Sanskrit college, Adhai-din ka Jhonpra was converted into a mosque by Muhammad Ghori in 1198 CE. The mosque is an exquisite piece of Indo-Islamic architecture designed by Abu Bakr of Herat. It is said to have been created in just two and a half days in the year 1153, using the masonry taken from broken Hindu and Jain temples. Adding ethereal aura to the place are the inscriptions of the Koran in Islamic calligraphy on the seven-arched wall of the mosque. Tall pillars with large, bulbous bases support the structure. A number of small arches built of yellow limestone adorn the front façade. The central arch has numerous tiny, rectangular panels flanked by six smaller arches of Arab origin. These arches act as filters of light, letting the sunshine through into the building; reminiscent of the ones in ancient Arabian mosques. Located on the outskirts of the town, beyond the Dargah of Khwaja Muin-ud-din Chishti, the mosque may be in need of restoration, but even with its dilapidated state, the soaring domes, pillars, and the beautiful arched screen make this place a must-visit location.
