Adhai Din ka Jhonpra, Ajmer

Adhai Din-Ka-Jhonpra in Ajmer

Ajmer is a renowned vacation spot of Rajasthan wealthy of numerous historical monuments and tombs of past. Adhai Din-ka-Jhonpra is a delicate instance of early Indo-Islamic architecture, designed by Abu Bakr. As the name suggests the monument was completed within two and a half days under the supervision of Mohammad Ghori. Constructed in 1198 A.D, Adhai Din Ka Jhonpra was deftly decorated over an already existing structure that housed an ancient center of Sanskrit learning. The monument was the only popular mosque in Ajmer right from the Mughal period. The beautifully carved pillars, arched screen and ruined minarets make the tomb one of the mostly visited places in Rajasthan.

Adhai-Din Ka-Jhonpra is supported by 124 pillars and the monument is coroneted with 10 magnificent domes. The tomb is a relic of old mosque. The arched walls of the mosque had inscriptions with Islamic scripts; however most of them exist in ruins only. A majestic tower remarkably sited just inside the mosque that is used by the Muezzin to chant prayers. The stone walls of the main prayer hall are fashioned with carved rectangular panels having net like appearance on it. Avoiding the diversities of the monument, the arches and pillars have been mingled perfectly to create an optimum architectural masterpiece. This quadrangle pedestal mosque has adorned with front screen wall with pointed arches. Visitor easily gets resemblance between Adhai Din Ka Jhonpra with two and a half day fair held at Ajmer every year.
