The then sculptor Ostad Khalil is behind the flawless structural designing of this muslims place of worship. But, it is also observed that its layout resembles with the Moti Masjid in Agra. Consequently, it has three entryways to the courtyard, 130 ft high two slender minarets on both sides and four towers to make it look imposing for your eyeballs.
