About Jami Masjid, Mandu
This Jama Masjid or the Friday Mosque is another version of that in Delhi. The construction of this dates back to the reign of Hoshang Shah. The mosque is made on a vast area and has a gorgeous domed entrance. The other two subsidiary entrances are to the northern side of the mosques. Out of these one was meant for the priests or maulvis and the other one a private entrance for the women who were called the zenana.
The mosque is built on a raised platform and has a long chamber in the front part with arches which was used as a resting place or sarai at that time. The mosque is in ruins almost but once you enter you will find faint traces of borders and lines made of glazed colorful tiles. This is an example of the fact that this was a beautiful mosque at that time. There are three other similar domes on the opposite side of the courtyard. The courtyard has arcaded towers on all sides and pillars that look stunning. The pillars have small domes or cupolas on the top of each bay. The mihrab designs on the domes and main walls enhance the charm of this ruin even more.
This mosque is an example of the simplicity of the Malwa style of architecture that stresses on the building and its strong construction more that the intricate designs.

Jami Masjid, Mandu Reviews
Jami Masjid is located on the plateau of the Mandu and hold a prosperous history of the place and of the Islam in the by gone days. The Masjid was built by the rulers of Ghauri dynasty. The intricate marble work and its huge size will definitely give you the scope to unveil the mysterious past.
Very well built. I wonder how these monuments were built in those times!
It is avery good place showing historical construction and well maintained place
It does not resembles to a masjid. Clearly visible some jain or hindu temple. You can see flowers, lotus, bell, chakra which shows it was a temple. Check the number if dome, you can see the kalash over dome which can not be on masjid. It's good indian architecture and again shows the history of muslim king destroying hindu temple.
Beautiful Architectural site And a great Archeological monument ❤
