The central one is higher and provided with an unusually high doorway which rises above the roof in a sharply pointed arch decorated in coloured stucco. The prayer hall is surmounted by three pear-shaped high double domes decorated with an inverted lotus on the top and is also flanked by two octagonal four-storeyed tapering minarets on either side, crowned by "Chhatries" on the top.

Historical place biggest mosque in utter perdesh , nice paint work inside must see one time.
Beautifully constructed mosque. Very well maintained. Azaan given here is so melodious. Prayers are offered regularly. Majlis during moharram and other sad occasions as well as jashn on good times also take place here. And yes, the images given here are NOT of this place instead, they are of a mosque inside the Bada Imambara.
