Moth Ki Masjid Delhi

Moth Ki Masjid

Lentil Mosque
 
Moth Ki Masjid was built by Miyan Bhuwa in Delhi. He served as a minister during Sikander Lodi’s reign in the 16th century. People will be able to see Moth Ki Masjid right behind South Extension Part 11. It is an urban locale in the capital of India in Masjid Moth village. 
 
The mosque has a large red sandstone gateway on the eastern side of the area. The mosque is placed on a raised platform. With three domes, it unravels a significant development in the evolution of the Mughal architecture as a dome has added a new dimension to the architectural designs of constructing a mosque. 
The mosque has a prayer chamber with five arched openings apart from the dome. The majestic and gorgeous arches are engraved with delicate designs that include the mihrab with Quranic inscriptions in Naskh characteristics. The middle arch was built with red sandstone and designed with marble. It draws people’s attention with its amazing colour. You will be in awe with the towers that have two storeys and arched openings on the roof. The mosque has octagonal chhatris with domes on the walls.
