Malik Mughith Masjid




Situated on the eastern shore of Sagar Talab, Malik Mughith Masjid is at Mandu in the Dhar District of Madhya Pradesh. Built by Mughith al-Din Ulugh-e Aíazam Humayun, it is the only building which was constructed during the reign of Muhammad Ghori. This mosque dates back to the 15th century. The beautiful Islamic calligraphy and the turquoise tiles found on the main entrance are noteworthy. Opposite to the masjid, there is a high walled building, caravanserai (merchantís inn) where the merchants would rest.
