MOSQUE OF SAYYID ALAM
The center of the east front of this mosque consists of three arch-shaped entrances, with rich sculpture using a semi-circular pattern. The central 3 spans consist of arched walls of the same height. Either side of this part has a line of pillars, showing a different structure. These parts are lower in height than the central part. The upper part of the mosque has three domes. The central dome is in a two-tired well-hole style, giving dignity to this mosque. The well-hole part of the dome is T-shaped, with a corridor behind the arch of the central part mesuring 3 spans, and the domed part in the centre. The back side of the west part of the mosque is decorated by openwork windows with geometric patterns.
The inside of the mosque is filled with pillars converted from a Hindu or Jain temple, creating a pagan atmosphere. Like the Mosque of Haibat Khan, having the appearance of a mosque and a pagan atmosphere inside, this building best shows the special features of mosques in the Medieval Gjarati region. (Matsuo Ara)
This mosque faces the street leading to south from the city gate, Shahpur gate, in the northwest area of the inner fort. (Naoko Fukami)
