Delhi : Arched Platform in Sunder Nursery

Tuesday, June 2, 2015

Arched Platform in Sunder Nursery is a 16th century Mosque. 

When I first saw it, I was under the impression that it was a watchtower. But a watchtower is always atop a hill not on ground level.

The square shaped structure is on a podium, a few steps lead to the top. It has three arched windows on the front of it, the middle one being the biggest and the other two twin windows on the side.

Pillars of equal height which are placed equidistant from each other survive around the structure.

The Central Public Works Department (CPWD)is working on the reconstruction of this Mosque based on the structural information and photographs provided by INTACH publication, Delhi.
