Jami Masjid, Champaner-Pavagadh Overview

Jami Masjid, also known as Jama Masjid of Champaner is located about 150 feet (46 m) east of the city walls. Dating back to the 15th century, it is widely considered as one of the finest mosques in western India.

This edifice is two storied and is a symbol of both Islamic and Hindu(specifically Gujarati) styles of architecture. Like the other mosques around the world, the Jami Masjid also has a very minutely designed entrance which is flanked by two towering octagonal minarets. Along with modern techniques of architecture, this mosque also reflects how the architects used modern techniques to cultivate rainwater harvesting systems. One of the minarets is a tad bit damaged. This is not because it has been worn out but because of an intentional gun firing in 1812 by a Scindia Governor named Patankar. The monument has some very majestic artwork on its symmetric pillars and all this has been conserved very well.
