We have several descriptive reports of this mosque, but nobody has tried to delve deep into the subject as the present author does with a view of catching the beauty of the building and itsunderlying prnciples. The proportionate distribution of structural elements and the richness of decorative detail make this building a veritable gem of the subcontinent.

Eminent scholars on the subject have paid rich tribute to this magnificent building.
