Photograph of the Ikhlas Khan mosque, Bijapur from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections taken by Henry Cousens in the 1880s. The Ikhlas Khan Mosque dates from 1597 and is one of the earlier religious structures of the Adil Shahis at Bijapur. It is very similar to the Ibrahim's Jami Masjid with which it shares the architectural feature of placing minars over the central piers of the fa├žades. The central arch of the facade is lower than the others and is scalloped.
