Jama Masjid

, Mandu

Not far from the Hoshang's Tomb is the Jami Masjid, begun by Hoshang Shah but completed by Mahmud I. Considered the most majestic building in Mandu, it is modelled on the great Omayyed Mosque in Damascus.

It has a massive domed porch and elevated plinth projecting in the center, the background is decorated by similar striking domes with the overriding space filled with numerous domes. The court of this masjid is enclosed on all sides by huge colonnades.

An austere and stern structure, the mosque’s qibla wall has 17 niches with crenellations, the central one with Quranic inscriptions. Along the north side are two subsidiary entrances, one for the priests and the other for the zenana.

It is open daily 8:30 am - 5:30 pm.
