Atala Masjid


In 1408 A.D., Ibrahim Shah Sharqi built the Atala Masjid which came to be considered as the ideal model for the construction of the other mosques of Jaunpur. In this mosque, beautiful galleries were built by surrounding it with artistic walls. Its height is more than 100 ft. There are three huge gateways for entrance. The total perimeter of the mosque is 248 ft. Its construction was begun by Feroze Shah in 1393 AD.
