GATEWAY TO THE PAST
Located off the Saket-Sheikh Sarai road almost totally hidden, because it is built in a sligh depression, there stands one of the most unique examples of the architecture of the Sultanate period. The Khirkec Mosque is one of the seven mosques in Delhi that were built by Jomann Shah, also known as Khan-e-Jahan, the Wazir of Firoze Tughlaq.
Shah also built the Kalan Masjid-which is now inside the Walled City- the Begumpur Masjid and the Kalu Sarai Masjid.
The Khirkee Mosque is unique in its square design. Two long arched corridors divide the Mosque into four blocks. Previously, each section had a central dome. And the entire Mosque was roofed over, with just four large square openings to let all that light stream in.
The top of Mosque presents a most fascinating sight, three large domes-there were four in the original design-and a large number of smaller domes clustered together creating strange designs of light and shade.
Local peasants had taken over the mosque much before 1857. On my first visit to this unique structure, which deserves to be on world heritage list, I saw the blue ASI board outside and inside; there were a few smack addicts, sundry vagabonds, donkeys and some unfriendly dogs.
Things have improved a bit since then. You will now meet three card playing ASI employees from sunrise to sundown every day except Monday.
