Photograph of the fa├žade of Haibat Khan's Mosque at Ahmadabad in Gujarat, taken by Henry Cousens in the 1880s, from the Archaeological Survey of India. This mosque was built in c.1425 by a leading noble at the court of Sultan Ahmad Shah (r.1411-42). It lies north-east of the Jamalpur gate in the southern part of the city. The building is similar in plan to Ahmad Shah's mosque (c.1414), but with more Hindu masonry; most of the pillars derive from Hindu temples. This view shows the plain facade with three entrances and pointed arches.
