This is the earliest at Mandu may be around AD 1405. It was meant for the members of royal family. The pillars and ceiling inside are not matching with Mugal dynasty type seem these were taken from some where else & used as it is.

The mosque is in the same complex as the Jahaz Mahal. Typical Mughal architecture with pillared pathways and huge courtyard. You can see traces of jain architecture also within this mosque which was surprising.

In the same premises as Jahaj and Hindola etc., this place has beautiful structures. Although a mosque it has many of the statues representing Jain monks. Must visit for history lovers.
