Adhai Din Ka Jhopra, a wonderful historic place is a mosque in Ajmer city of Rajasthan, India. This mosque was built from dismantled remains of the temple in just 2.5 days. It used to be a Sanskrit college in the 12th century but Mohammed of Ghori destroyed the college and decided to build a mosque which led to the construction of this elegant and breathtakingly beautiful mosque. Though most of the ancient temple is in ruins today, the area of the mosque is still used as a place of worship. Eid is the most appropriate time to visit because Eid leads to marvellous decorations and celebrations in this place.
There are inscriptions carved on the mosque’s arched walls in Islamic calligraphy. If you are fond of art, this is a must visit place for you. The place is at a walkable distance from the dargah of Khwajah. Though most of the ancient temple is in ruins today, the area of the mosque is still used as a place of worship. In present, a large number of architectural things and sculptures of temples are lying inside the verandah of the complex for safety and security purposes by the department which shows the existence of a Hindu temple during 11th-12th Century AD.
