Abstract

Mosque architecture, especially in medieval India is a strong indicator of culture as well a record of power struggles. In history, Kalinjar, the site chosen for this study, is known as the site of the battle where, despite winning, Sher Shah died of wounds sustained due to the explosion of gun powder. This paper surveys the architectural features of mosques located at Kalinjar from the era of the Delhi Sultans to the Mughul Emperors. We can see how, in the same premises, mosque architecture undergoes change, enabling the reader to better trace the evolution of mosque architecture within one particular site.
