Khair-ud-Din Masjid, Amritsar Overview

Famous for its architecture, Khair-ud-Din Masjid was established by Mohd. Khairuddin in the year 1876. Khairuddin Masjid also known as Jama Masjid, is a beautiful mosque that holds great importance in India’s freedom struggle. Syed Ata Ullah Shah Bukhari, a Muslim scholar and a political leader, called upon the people to take the field against the British Rule from the brackets of this mosque. It was the place from where Tootie-e-Hind, Shah Attaullah Bukhari announced the great call for waging war against the looting British.

Following the arcuate style of construction, this stunning formation reflects the old Islamic architecture graced with magnificent beams and arches. The walls of the Jama Masjid are adorned by resplendent calligraphic Aayats. Built of white marble stone, the intricate designs including miniature paintings are done in green colour that perfectly compliments the white and pops out immediately. This insanely beautiful mosque is visited by locals as well as the tourists regularly.
