Post Dargah visit, visited the mosque, which is situated close to the Dargah. When we visited in the evening, the place was crowded, looks like a popular gathering place for the families. It has nice architecture. Interesting story associated with the mosque, it is believed that the fort was built in 2.5 days and accordingly the mosque was named. A visit along along with Dargah visit may be made.

After Dargha Sharif, the second best thing to do in Ajmer. Well worth the visit.
Best in the morning light.

Stunning architecture with equally mesmerising story behind how it was built in 2.5 (adhai) days. It's a bit of a climb through the alleys around Ajmer Dargah. Worth visiting if you are visiting the dargah.

The place is pretty close to Dargah. So it can be visited alongwith Dargah. The place is more like a picnic spot for families. It was quite crowded when I visited the place. There is a worshipping place also inside the fort. It is supposedly believed that the fort was built in 2.5 days and that's why the name.

Situated in Ajmer, Rajasthan India , It is one of the oldest and rare mosque of India. Originally it was a Jain and Hindu Sanskrit school with the Saraswati's ( goddess of Learning and music) temple within .

his temple and school later converted into a mosque; in two and a half days ( within 60 hours ) and that is why it is know as dhai din ka jhopra. However one can see the mosque retained most of the original Hindu and Jain features, especially on the ornate pillars and domes.

A tablet dated to 1153 CE was found at the site. The original building was square-shaped, with a tower-chhatri (dome-shaped pavilion) at each corner. A temple dedicated to Sarasvati was located on the western side.

As per the historical facts there were 10 domes and 344 carved pillars with Hindu and Jain deities. At present there are 10 domes and 77 pillars in symmetrical forms. When it was converted into the mosque , the arches were built outside the temple with inscriptions and quotations from Koran. It was built in Hindu and Islam style of architecture. (Indo sarsanic architectural style)

The monument have Jain - Hindu and Islam art. It is now under archaeological survey of India, open to all.

As it was a temple and a mosque; combined, people generally remove their footwear before entering the monument. They move bare foot within the arcade admiring the beauty of art and architecture and at the same time learning the history of this monument.

It is located at a walking distance from Dargah Sharif. Architecture is marvellous. Fakirs would gather here to celebrate Panjaba Shah's death anniversary fair for 2 and half days. Name is derived from the same. Earlier to 18th century it was a mosque which was converted from Sanskrit college on the instructions of Muhammed Ghori.

The Adhai Din Ka Jhonpda is an active mosque that has a prayer hall that looks small compared to the imposing entrance to it. The complex was originally a school for teaching Sanskrit, but converted into a mosque by Mu'izz ad-Din Muhammad Ghori, or Sultan Ghori after the creator of the Ghurid Dynasty that ushered in Islamic rule over the Indian subcontinent.

The main attractions are the imposing Indo-Islamic septuple arch decorated with kufic script and the prayer hall which is many pillared in the fashion of trabeate architecture.

Within the old city - this is considered to be a place built within 2 and half days. Currently part of the structure is maintained by ASI and we can visit the same and take photograhs.

Adhai Din ka Jhonpra is a mosque that is said to be built within two and a half days by the order of Mohammad Ghori. The sultan ordered the mosque to be built within 60 hours and the workers worked day and night but were only able to construct a screen wall so that the sultan could offer his prayers.
