This is the earliest Bahmani mosque built around 1367 under the reign of Muhammad Shah. It is in the northern side of the Gulbarga Fort. It is a replica of the great mosques in the complex in Delhi. The main gate in the east features an imposing dome. The prayer room is topped by 90 small inconspicuous domes with 15 arch-shaped entrances. Pillars between arches are painted in white with no decoration.
