Description: Built in 1367 by Rafi, from N. Persia. Only entirely covered mosque in India. Its style, also unique, is very pure. It measures 213 feet by about 170 feet and has sixty-eight cupolas. Those on the corners are larger than the others and the cupola above the prayer hall, elevated on a high square base, has a drum beneath the dome. The exterior is massive and without any decoration. The entrance, in the centre of the north wall, has an arch which is higher than the roof and is flanked by two little minarets.
