Alamgir Mosque, built by the Mughal Emperor Aurangaseb, has the unique distinction of being the largest structure located on the banks of the river Ganges in Varanasi. It is believed that the Mosque is placed at a place where a majestic Krishna temple was located. This temple was destroyed and the Mosque was constructed at that place during Mughal invasion in India.

The Mosque is at a picturesque location overlooking Panchganga Ghat and is bordered by the majestic Ganges. The architectural style of the mosque is a blend of Hindu and Persian styles of construction and is very imposing. The edifice is magnificent with carved pillars, turrets and marvelous domes.
