Bai Harir Mosque




Located at Ahmedabad in Gujarat, Bai Harir Mosque is a highly revered shrine built by one of the women of Sultan Begaraís harem named Bai Harir. This mosque is constructed behind a well and there is a mausoleum, considered to entomb her, on the north-eastern part. The structure and style of the mosque resemble that of Mosque of Bibi Achut Kuki.

Inscriptions are seen in the central mihrab of the mosque. The two minars on both sides of the front and the basement of the oriel makes it more attractive. The sculptural work in the center of the prayer room and the upper part of the walls of the central room depicts features of Gujarati architecture. Dada Hari Wav Step Well and Mata Bhavani's Well are nearby attractions.
