jama masjid Champaner-Pavagadh , Champaner, Gujarat, India

Jami Masjid (also known as, Jama Masjid; meaning "public mosque") in Champaner, Gujarat state, western India, is part of the Champaner-Pavagadh Archaeological Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is among the 114 monuments there which are listed by the Baroda Heritage Trust.[1] It is located about 150 feet (46 m) east of the city walls (Jahdnpandh), near the east gate.The mosque dates to 1513; construction was carried out over 25 years.[2] It is one of the most notable monuments built by Sultan Mahmud Begada. The Mughal architecture is said to have drawn from the architecture of the Sultanates, which is a blend of Hindu religious connotations and workmanship with Muslim ethos; the large domes are indicative of such a mix.[3][4][5][6] Restoration works were carried out in the 1890s.
