The Kali Masjid aka Jama Masjid is located on the Qila Road, in Monin Pura in Burhanpur in Madhya Pradesh.

The Kali Masjid was located very close to Hotel Madhuvan. So close that we could see the Minaret and Masjid Walls from our room. 

We had breakfast in the form of vada's, bread cutlet and Kali Jalebi at Milan Mithai, located close to Hotel Madhuvan. Pls note that breakfast items are sold only in the morning. The snacks here are finger licking good.

We then headed over to entrance to Kali Masjid. The walls of the Masjid look like that of a fort. Made of black stone. It had a nice border atop the walls. The two Minarets placed at two ends were beautiful.

Near the entrance of the Masjid are many shops. The Entry to the Masjid is via a Darwaza. The Darwaza had a Chor Darwaza (Small Door) in it. Looks like we were entering a fort premises. 

I looked up and so the ceiling and it was beautifully painted.
There is water to clean ones legs on the right as we enter.

The design on the ceiling, I was talking about.

The Masjid stood in front of us. It was very beautiful. At two ends stood two Minarets. Entry to the top of it is restricted. It appeared to me, like the Masjid didn't have a ceiling.

The Masjid was built by Adil Shah Faruqui somewhere in the 16th century.

There was hardly anyone at the Masjid. The pillars of the Masjid are in Symmetry, plus want was interesting is that the fans had a white bulb fitted to it. It served two purposes, provide breeze and also light at night.

We were not able to spot the Caretaker, as we wanted to see the Tasbeh, rosary made from thousand beeds of Olives. If you do a google search then you should be able to see a photo of it.

The Masjid premises was calm and quiet. I felt at peace here. The cool breeze blowing , the sound of the leaves of the tree was like music to my ears. I wished to spend more time here, but as we were short of time , we moved out to go see the Akbari Sarai located a couple of meters away.
