The Mihrawli idgah. Located north of Mihrawli village, about 900 m west of Qutb Minar. Grid ref. F-12.
This prayer wall has fifteen mihrabs at present. There are very large bastion-type towers at either end. The whole structure is painted white. It has been repaired many times at different periods and the present form is a result of repairs undertaken in the twentieth century. Consequently it is impossible from the building itself to ascertain when it was first constructed. However, a record concerning the invasion of Delhi by Timur at the end of the fourteenth century describes a prayer wall in Delhi; it can be surmised that this was the building referred to.
