Khirki Masjid

This is an offbeat mosque that stands out from all its counterparts of that era. The mosque was built by the Prime Minister of Ferozeshah Tughlaq named, Khan-i-Jahan Junaan Telangani. The mosque that is now a symbol of loneliness and ignorance is a fine blend of Hindu and Islamic architecture. Unlike other mosques that have a single courtyard, this is divided into four small courtyards, each having a design different from the other. The lattice and calligraphy work is admirable and the sight of children using the green area for playing is a blissful sight. The building is almost in crumbles at present. The main reasons are lack of restoration and the scarcity of sunlight penetrating inside.
