Photograph of Mustafa Khan's Mosque, Bijapur from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections taken by henry Cousens in the 1880s. Henry Cousens described it: ''...a very lofty and substantially built edifice. The façade has three tall arches, the central one being very much wider than the side ones; and, being almost devoid of ornament, the front has rather a bald appearance. A deep heavy cornice overhangs the arches; and the octagonal buttresses, which were to carry minarets, flank the façade of the building. But the minarets were never built...'' The mosque was built in 1641.
