This unusual mosque, with its striking mosaic decoration, dates from the early 18th century, although it has been radically altered. It was originally built in the typical Mughal style, with four corner towers. Around 50 years ago a local businessman financed its redecoration with Japanese and English porcelain tiles, and the addition of a new verandah. If you look hard you can see tiles illustrated with pictures of Mt Fuji!
