MOSQUE INSIDE THE FORT
The Mosque inside the fort is protected by the A.S.I. It was built in 1750 and constructed of granite stones with mortar, on three sides. At present it is not used for worship and the gates of the mosque are closed. It is rectangular in shape. On the front side it is plastered with lime and bricks. The Hindu architecture slowly yielded place to the flourishing Muslim architecture which is evident in the form of innumerable mosques and palaces which are Indo-Saracenic style.
