Adhai Din Ka Jhonpra, Ajmer
Situated on the outskirts of the town of Ajmer, the Adhai Din Ka Jhonpra holds considerable historical significance. The mosque, though needs some restoration work, is an exquisite piece of art that beautifully blends Jain and Muslim architecture.
As per the local legends, the construction of this mosque was completed in two and half days and hence the name (Adhai translates to two and a half in Urdu). Some folk tales relate the name of this monument to the two and a half day festival that used to be celebrated here every year.
Adhai Din Ka Jhonpra was earlier an abode of worship for the Jains and Hindus before Muhammed Ghori of the Ghurid Empire converted it into a mosque.
