Built in 1528-29,the Jamali Kamali Mosque is located within Mehrauli Archaeological Park, which actually shares boundary with Qutub Minar premises. This site is associated with haunting stories of the past. Within the mosque, there are the tombs of Jamali and Kamali. Jamali was the alias of Shaikh Jamali Kamboh, a famous and highly regarded sufi saint who lived during the pre-Mughal rule. Kamali on the other hand was an unknown person, but he was associated with Jamali. The tomb and mosque in the complex have been named together as “Jamali Kamali” since both people were buried next to each other. The mosque is constructed in red sandstone and is housed in an enclosed garden. A large courtyard leads to the main prayer hall, complete with five high arches, but only the central arch is topped with a dome. The walls and alcoves of the mosque are inscribed with verses of the Koran. Adjacent to the mosque is the tomb, which is a flat structure adorned with red and blue paint and inscriptions from the Koran and verses from Jamali’s poems.
