Jamia Masjid

Jamia Masjid

This mosque was built by Tipu Sultan in 1787 AD and is a mix of Hindu and Islamic architecture. It’s in pretty sad shape now, but you can imagine the grandeur of centuries past.

The main features are the two majestic minarets adorned with floral cornices and parapets. Climb a staircase to the top for a panoramic view of the area (don’t get too excited – it’s nothing special, but you might as well since you’re already there).

Koranic verses are inscribed on stone tablets within.
