Dilawarkhan's Mosque

This is the earliest Indo-Islamic building at Mandu as is clear from an inscription datable to A.D. 1405 referring to the reign of the first Muslim king of Malwa. It was meant specially for the members of the royal family. Its plan consists of a central court enclosed by colonnade, one aisle deep to north, east and south and four aisles deep to west. The pillars and the ceiling inside are in local style. The niches in the western wall and the main door bear rich ornamentation. The architecture of the building is considerably influenced by indigenous workmanship-a feature often found characteristic of the earliest Indo-Islamic architecture of Malwa.
