Illustration of Bava Alishah's mosque at Kochrab, near Ahmadabad. The mosque of Bava Alishah, also referred to as the Rani masjid, is located in the village of Paldi Kochrab across the Sabarmati River from Ahmadabad. This small mosque measures 37 by 9 feet and once was one of the most beautiful buildings in the area, however the dilapidated condition does not reflect this. The minarets, on the ends of the building's fa├žade, were once both two storeys tall, as illustrated on the right side of the building. Along the front of the building there are four pillars which offer support the three domed structure. In the interior, along the back wall there are three corresponding prayer niches. The two windows on the back wall were once filled with perforated stonework.
